Product Description

Details

Old Man Emu are pleased to release the latest application of BP-51 High Performance Bypass Shock Absorbers engineered specifically for the OME Defender Long Travel Application.

Supplied either as a front kit or rear kit, or the individual shock absorbers are available seperately

 

The fit kits include all the required spacers and brackets to allow the fitment of a longer travel, larger diameter BP-51 damper with remote reservoir. Fit kits include a front shock turret (tower) replacement, front and rear bump stop spacers, sway bar spacer, rear upper shock mount and all necessary hardware for correct fitment of the BP-51 remote reservoir.


The dampers for the Defender Long Travel have been tuned specifically and designed for the OME’s current range of Long Travel coil designs. Particular attention needs to be made to coil selection to ensure coil entrapment due to the longer travel design.


Recommended compression and rebound settings can be found in the supplied fitting instructions for loading scenarios that utilise the various spring options available from the OME current Defender Long Travel Application. The fitting instructions include detailed information for correct installation of the shock absorber and reservoir placement.

Front BP51 Selection

Along with 2 specifically tuned front BP-51 shock absorbers, the front fit kit includes a replacement front shock turret, front sway spacers, front bump stop spacers and reservoir mount assembly.

  • Front Shock Turret (Tower)

With the hose for the reservoir mounting to the top of the BP-51  damper, which is where the shock mounts, the OME engineers have designed and developed a new shock turret. The new turret  allows to run the BP-51 remote reservoir hose through it. A new bracket to mount the remote reservoir was also developed.

  • Bump Stop Spacer       

 A fabricated bump stop 30mm spacer was designed and utilises  the factory bump stop and is an easy bolt on solution. The front bump stop spacer is supplied with the front fitting kit.

  • Sway Bar Spacer      

With the increase down travel the driveshaft will come in contact with the sway bar, to overcome this OME engineers have designed a sway bar spacer fit kit and utilises existing mounts, again an easy bolt on solution. Front sway bar spacers are included in the front fit kit. Caster correction is addressed by our existing replacement caster bush and trim packer is available if required for ride height tuning.

It is important to note the a Front driveshaft MUST be replaced/modified with Double Cardan Joints and checked for Uni bind with the OME longer shocks installed at full droop.


SPRINGS: Front spring selection must be from the current OME Defender LONG TRAVEL application.

 

Rear BP51 Selection

Along with 2 specifically tuned rear BP-51 shock absorbers, the rear fit kit includes a replacement rear upper shock mount, rear sway spacers, rear bump stop spacers and reservoir mount assembly.

 

  • Rear Upper Shock Mount

The rear upper shock mount bracket was developed and changes the top mount type from an eye to pin shock mount. This was developed to improve the articulation of the mount and reduce load on the mount components.

  • Bump Stop Spacers

A fabricated bump stop 30mm spacer was designed and utilises the factory bump stop and is an easy bolt on solution. The rear bump stop spacer is included with the rear fit kit.

  • Sway Bar Spacer

With the longer travel in the rear suspension, the OME engineers discovered that the droop was limited now by the rear sway bar. The introduction of a fabricated sway bar spacer for the rear enables full benefit of the longer travel shock. Rear sway bar spacers are included in the rear fit kit.

SPRINGS: Rear spring selection must be from the current OME Defender LONG TRAVEL application.
