Suspension Upgrades with OME

Aftermarket 4WD suspension is extremely complex, and determining the right solution for your vehicle and your requirements demands special attention to many factors.

Unlike numerous aftermarket suspension systems, which are only available in a single configuration targeting lift height, OME offers a range of tuned and matched integrated suspension systems to ensure the right suspension is available to suit how the vehicle is outfitted and the conditions it will encounter.

Old Man Emu employs a team of full-time ride control engineers to carry out an exhaustive testing and development program on each component in an OME suspension system. A long list of sophisticated test equipment – including Motec data acquisition and Finite Element Analysis programs, spring and shock dynamometers, and Solidworks design and analysis programs – ensure OME’s development work has an unrelenting, no compromise approach.

Particular focus is placed on shock absorber valving performance and how well they are matched to the specific springs they will be controlling. OME’s engineers hand-build four prototype shock absorbers with the capability of altering their valve code combinations. Fitted to the vehicle and extensively trialled over all terrain, the shocks’ valving is adjusted until the engineers confirm the correct valve codes to match the specific springs.
