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 Triton Suspension

The Mitsubishi Triton is a medium sized utility vehicle suited to both commercial and recreational uses. Although limited by the layout of some original equipment suspension components, OME engineers focussed on providing moderate ride height increases whilst improving comfort, control and ride quality on all surfaces.

A range of front springs, with matching shocks, were developed to cater for differing vehicle setups and front ride height increases of approximately 10mm were achieved. As the Triton has a chassis mounted droop stop that contacts the upper arm to limit down travel, further ride height increases were not possible without the need for costly modification or sacrificing ride quality and safety.

Rear ride height increases of approximately 20mm slightly increase the factory rake, whilst a range of higher rated springs with greasable shackles were developed to cater for the long rear overhang and subsequent leverage affect applied to the rear suspension. An XL leaf has also been developed to assist with fine tuning the weight carrying capacity and matching spring bush kits ensure ease of service and increased bush life.
