Product Information

MSRP: $450.00
Average Price: $343.97
Manufacturer: Old Man Emu (OME)
Yes: 65 / 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

Pros: heavy duty springs, provide 2" lift, all new components for restoration project
Cons: Required a minor modification to accommodate 1" longer length of front springs. Shock hangers weren't a good fit, had to buy aftermarket replacements
Recommended? Yes

Comments: CJ frame off restoration project. Springs came with new spring plates, u-bolts, etc. and were a good fit with minor modification on front springs (1" longer than factory). Crabtree spring hangers made this mod very easy (one hole to drill on each side).

Pros: Tough
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: It gave my stock ZJ a 2-2/14 lift and stance I wanted. I'm using 943 and 934 HD springs, Bilstien shocks and I added 3/4 spacers to the stock rear for the perfect leveling. Price is for springs and shocks. Rides very smooth.

Price: $167.00
Pros: -Nice, durable, black finish -Rides nice -Decent length
Cons: N/A
Recommended? Yes

Comments: These are very nice looking springs with a very durable, black finish. The craftsmanship is top notch. The front springs have decent length. I actually netted about 3" of lift in the rear (OME2949) on my LJ and that's with a heavy steel bumper with full size spare (35" MTR) and steel Metal Cloak flares. I ended up with about 2.5" in the front (OME2933) but I've got steel Metal Cloak fenders/flares, a heavy front bumper and a winch with steel cable. Price was per pair.

Pros: great quality heavy duty springs
Cons: lifted 2dr jk more then 2.5'' for a couple weeks until springs settled down
Recommended? Yes

Comments: great springs got from qtech, only problem was that when i first installed them they lifted the jeep around 3-3.5'' causing my rear axel to not be centered. this was expected because they're heavy duty and they settled down in a week and a half

Pros: Stiff but enjoyable ride, good lift height, quality.
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Love the damn things. Jeep sits nice and high, not level, but that's probably because of the damn HEMI. Ride quality is excellent; it is stiff, but takes a licking and comes back for more.

Pros: Very strong, albeit somewhat stiff (which I like) with excellent on, and especially off-road manners.
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought these Old Man Emu 36R HD leaf springs only after reading the copious positive reviews on different forums and so far, they've lived up to their reputation. I will say, I have the 36R's on all four corners and they are quite stiff. If your looking for comfortable street driving springs, i would look elsewhere. On the other hand, if you want great off-road capability coupled with excellent street manners and long life, these can't be beat.

Pros: Strong, durable
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I got a whole set of OME springs for 289 dollars from kolak who is on jeep forum. When I got them you can see how they stand up against stock springs. I like the look and performance of them. Plus it gave me a lifted look since their 2.5" taller then stock. Definatly worth the money

Pros: I bought these springs as part of the DPG super ultimate kit. Performs ok on and off road. Nice for a low cg lift.
Cons: A little stiff in the rear. front end was also stiff with the stock sway bar.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The product was good. Went in pretty straight forward. The springs were stiff until I changed to aftermarket bumpers and changed the stock sway bar to a currie anti rock.

Cons: None so far!
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Great ride, with the lift amount realized slightly more than advertised. Solid black coating on the springs which hopefully will resist corrosion.

Pros: Very good ride, especially with weight...
Cons: Without weight, it is a little bit rough
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I put these on at my dealer's recomendation to help with the extra weight I put on. Hadn't realy expected them to give me more height... They did... With the additional equipment, Bumpers winch and such, I gained about 4" on my JKU. With the Gobi rack full and the rear full ready for an expedition. I still sit around 3" above stock... and weighted the ride is much better than stock...

Highly recommend.

Price: $900.00
Pros: been great to me so far, little complaints here and there but nothing I couldn't handle in short recession
Cons: needs extra clips to keep the springs in check, but this might be the case with all springs in due time
Recommended? Yes

Comments: They came with the jeep, so I didn't install them. I did, however take them off and reinstall them when I found that the BL was done wrong by PO, so I just redid everything suspension wise. New set of U bolts later, the springs held up to some serious action and want some more. I will say, however (and this might be the case with all springs as they get more used), I had to fab up some extra clips to wrap around the springs to keep them frpm spreading apart, wierd I know. Overall, very nice product.
