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.

Toyota Fortuner Suspension

Toyota Fortuner Suspension

The Toyota Fortuner is a medium-sized utility vehicle suited to both commercial and recreational uses. During development, OME engineers focussed on increasing ride height and load carrying capability whilst improving comfort, control and ride quality on all surfaces.

A range of front springs, with matching shocks, were adopted from the Toyota Hilux model to cater for differing vehicle setups. Front ride height increases of approximately 35mm were achieved without the need for costly modification. A front trim packer was developed to further fine tune front ride heights.

Rear springs and shocks have been specifically tuned to operate in balance with the front suspension. With a ride height increase of 25mm, two different spring options are available giving increased comfort whilst catering for different load requirements.

An 8mm spacer has also been developed to re-align the drive line to ensure there are no drive line vibration issues.
