Old Man Emu Nitrocharger shock absorbers are built and designed in Australia for Australian conditions. Invariably, vehicles are heavily loaded, fitted with accessories and driven on harsh Outback roads for prolonged periods. This is because Australia is the most sparsely populated continent in the world, hence the need to heavily load, fit lots of accessories and drive long distances! This is the crucible in which Old Man Emu suspension components are designed for and tested in.
Old Man Emu engineers specialize in nothing else but 4WD suspension systems so they are the most experienced group of 4WD suspension engineers anywhere. When developing shock absorbers Old Man Emu takes all of these factors into consideration. This is reflected in the superb structural integrity of Nitrocharger shocks along with the fact they are properly valved for the conditions they will be required to work under. In addition, they are valved with the idea in mind of preserving the excellent on road ride quality usually found on modern 4 wheel drive vehicles.
Old Man Emu shock absorbers in many cases, several shock absorber applications are listed for one vehicle to ensure the proper match regardless of spring selection, installed accessories or load carrying requirements.
