At ARB, we know the importance of being able to accessorise your vehicle to suit your requirements. We also know this can come with additional load.

With GVM upgrades already available, ARB has invested significantly in an independent testing process and is now able to offer an increase in front axle load capacities for a series of the most popular current 4WD models when coupled with an Old Man Emu full suspension package. This validation process has found up to 170 kilograms of increased capacity.

ARB’s front axle load upgrades are standard with any full Old Man Emu Nitrocharger or BP-51 Suspension kit and are demonstrated by certification attached to your vehicle’s door pillar, owner’s manual and customer handover pack.

For customers who currently own these models and have had Old Man Emu suspension fitted, assessment for compliance is available through their local ARB store or stockist.
