Product Information

MSRP: $450.00
Average Price: $323.97
Manufacturer: Old Man Emu (OME)
Yes: 63 / No: 0

The emu is a unique bird native to Australia and cannot fly due to its massive size, but these amazing creatures can really run well. Their powerful legs absorb most of the impact while moving, allowing them to cover all types of terrain with the greatest of ease while their bodies remain virtually motionless.

Vehicle Suspension is especially complex, to say the least. When designing a suspension, special attention must be given to many factors with weight being the most critical. Most aftermarket suspension systems are only available in a single configuration, with lift height often being your only option. Old Man Emu is different. Instead of offering a compilation of parts that have been chosen primarily to increase the vehicle's ride height, Emu offers a range of tuned and matched, integrated systems, each offering varying degrees of comfort, load carrying capability & control characteristics. All components are designed by ARB and manufactured in Australia with an unrelenting, no-compromise approach.

Choose a suspension rated for a heavy load when your vehicle is equipped with many heavy accessories such as a winch, ARB bumper, hardtop, V8 engine conversion, roof rack, swing out tire carrier, etc. A medium load suspension will provide a softer ride for vehicles with perhaps just a winch and a hardtop. An Emu suspension rated for light loads is only recommended for soft top vehicles with little or no heavy accessories. When in doubt, choose medium. If you are looking for a firm ride and plan to add lots of heavy accessories in the future, choose a system rated for heavy loads. See you on the trails, mate

Comments: Best springs ever. I might rather have 4", but the feel of the OME Springs is great. Definitely better than stock.

Comments: These springs are designed for a flexy ride which I liked. The "HD" in the description is misleading. I was not told they are not recommended for use with SOA so I'm replacing them with the HD rears up front.

Pros: Levels out WJ stance
Cons: More expensive than most springs
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Bought 4 OME HD (936 and 945) coil springs to level out 2002 WJ and lift. I also added 3/4 inch spring spacers for a total of 3" lift.

Hub to fender measurement went from 18 inches to 21 inches.

The HD versions of the springs are stiffer than stock WJ springs but give the WJ a real nice stance and allow you to run 31 inch tires with no problems.

No need for adjustable control arms, adjustable track bar, drive shaft work, etc. with 3 inch lift. Total cost of the lift was about $650.00 (OME HD springs, Pro-Comp MX6 shocks, 3/4" spacers).

Comments: Owned for 3 years, I run the Medium weight OME springs on my WJ and have enjoyed them. I lose .5 inches of height as opposed to HD springs, but I opted for a smoother ride in my 4.0L. Two thumbs up.

Comments: Fronts sagged an inch or more after being installed for a month or so. Rears didn't. Again, there are probably springs just as good out there for less scratch.
