Features & Product Details

ARB 4x4 Accessories, the company that revolutionized the 4x4 world with the Air Locker selectable differential, has now transformed the suspension world with the introduction of the Old Man Emu BP-51 High Performance Bypass Shock Absorbers. Bringing racing technology to your adventures, the OME BP-51 shock absorbers feature revolutionary, patent-pending technology developed by the Old Man Emu engineers to deliver unparalleled on and off road performance. This application of OME BP-51 High Performance Bypass Shock Absorbers has been engineered specifically for the Jeep JK Wrangler with larger lifts of 3.5 to 4.5 inch. Consisting of 4 shocks and 2 fit kits will fit both the LWB (Unlimited) and SWB variants for all year models from 2006 onwards. The engineers have designed two front shock absorbers, differing in extended length by 50mm, to fit various suspension heights. This ensures proper wheel travel can be achieved when matched with different coil springs. The BP5160021 has been specifically matched to the Old Man Emu JK 4 inch suspension kit (OMEJK4) and is a direct replacement for the front shock absorber supplied in that kit. A longer version has also been developed (BP5160022) for longer travel applications*. The front fit kit includes all mounting hardware required to fit the shock absorber and reservoir. A lower shock absorber mount has been designed that repositions the shock to provide clearance between the shock body and the chassis rail.

The rear shock has been designed to fit within the factory mounts and includes a stone guard to protect the shaft from front wheel stone damage. The rear fit kit consists of a reservoir piggy back clamp and mounting hardware. It is worth noting the fitting instructions to ensure correct positioning of the reservoir to ensure clearance to other components. Both front and rear shock absorbers will be factory set in compression and rebound. Recommended settings for variations in load and accessory fitment are suggested in the included fitting instructions. Damping performance is easily adjustable across a wide range in both rebound and compression, allowing the user to alter the vehicle’s ride performance and cater for different road conditions and vehicle loading scenarios. The body, reservoir and components are all made from aircraft grade (6061 T6) aluminum, with a type 3, 40 micron hard anodized finish, ensuring exceptional heat dissipation and resistance to corrosion and stone damage. Designed, developed and tested entirely by ARB’s team of Old Man Emu Ride Engineers. All BP-51 shock absorbers are manufactured in-house by ARB. In order to achieve this, significant investment has been made in state of the art machinery and hard anodizing equipment, allowing ARB total control of the manufacturing process to ensure the highest possible quality. *As JK Wranglers can be a vehicle with heavy modifications which may include axle upgrades, thorough checking of fit suitability and clearance to other components is recommended as all development was conducted on original equipment. Areas for consideration may include location of shock mounts, bump stop spacing, brake line lengths, coil entrapment and driveshaft travel.

*NOTE - Due to varying lift heights we always recommend you measure the shock length you need to ensure proper fitment on your application*
