Nitrocharger Sport

Where the purpose of a spring is to carry the load of a vehicle and its cargo, a shock absorber works to control the spring by absorbing excess energy and in doing so, has a profound impact on your vehicle’s ride and handling.

During the development of Old Man Emu’s Nitrocharger Sport shock absorbers, particular focus was placed on how well they are matched to the specific springs they’ll be controlling; with Ride Control Engineers tailoring shock absorber valving to work with the different springs in the range, often resulting in multiple shock absorber options for each vehicle.

Why Old Man Emu?

Suspension systems, especially when referring to 4WDs, are extremely complex. Determining the right solution for each 4WD requires special attention to many factors, with weight being the most critical. Old Man Emu 4×4 suspension by ARB approaches this in a unique way.

Instead of offering a compilation of parts that have been chosen primarily to increase the vehicle’s ride height, OME 4×4 suspension provides a range

of tuned, matched and integrated systems, each offering optimum levels of comfort, load carrying capability and control characteristics.

The complete Old Man Emu suspension range incorporates more than just 4×4 shock absorbers and springs. At ARB, we take integration to the highest level with our own selection of bushes, U bolts, centre bolts, spring liners, trim packers and suspension fitting kits.

Mitsubishi Challenger Suspension

Mitsubishi Challenger Suspension

The Mitsubishi Challenger is a medium sized passenger wagon which shares some of the Triton’s rugged underpinnings. During development, OME engineers focussed on increasing control and handling, particularly with extra loads on board, as well as providing modest increases in ride height.

The main limiting factor when increasing front ride height is the chassis mounted droop stop, which contacts the upper arm to limit down travel. With this limit in mind, OME engineers developed a range of front springs and struts, which provide front ride height increases of approximately 20mm without costly modifications.

Multiple rear springs and matching shocks were developed to cater for differing vehicle setups and extensive shock tuning was undertaken to optimise comfort, control and handling. Rear ride height increases of approximately 40mm provide a slight increase to the factory vehicle rake.
