The custom Wranglers suspension has been uprated to an ARB Old man Emu Sport system with a 2.5” height increase.
While ride height increases are attained with this kit, emphasis is placed on ride control improvements. Further fine tuning is achieved as the springs are precisely matched to a corresponding set of Old Man Emu shock absorbers, delivering a fully integrated system designed specifically to suit the Jeep. The spring rate has been specifically engineered for the 2 door petrol variant. Extra weight from aftermarket equipment has been accounted for in the spring rate to ensure the suspension is optimum for the Jeep.

Designed by a dedicated team of OME engineers through an exhaustive vehicle specific development program, Nitrocharger Sport 4×4 shock absorbers deliver the best control, durability and most comfortable ride over all terrain.
Brake line relocation brackets have been developed to reroute factory brake lines to work with this kits’ extended shock lengths – this relieves stress on brake lines resulting from the higher ride height.
An Old Man Emu heavy duty steering stabiliser / damper has also been fitted. This enables increased compression and extension damping performance. This improved performance will assist in the overall ride and control of the JK Wrangler.
