Tune your suspension
  |  First Published: June 2012



Thinking of taking the off roader on an extended inland trip on dusty tracks? Or will it be loaded to the hilt and heading to places with the camper trailer in tow? Either way your vehicle will be earning its keep!

I have towed a camper trailer plus fishing gear up a few beaches and out to hard-to-get-to cod water at the back of the New England slopes, and I’ve noticed that a vehicle with standard suspension can do it pretty tough at times.

The worse part is that when the vehicle is under strain so too is the driver, and quite often the passengers as well. You can get a bit of a hiding as the car lurches and rolls in obedience to the terrain and your car’s standard set up is going to work very hard.

To get the optimum performance from your rig, whether it’s one of the soft roaders or a larger full size 4x4, ARB can tune your suspension to ensure best ride quality, performance and durability.

In fact, there’s a lot more to ARB suspension work than just replacing existing shock absorbers and/or lifting the body of the vehicle. With the huge range of custom made Old Man Emu equipment on hand it’s advisable to review the entire suspension system of a vehicle when looking for enhanced ride or carrying capacity.

Common components include shock absorbers plus stone guards, urethane and rubber bush kits, custom springs, panhard rods, caster bushes, greasable shackles for leaf spring suspensions to ensure maximum ease of travel and overall performance, plus many other items all designed to make ride and comfort paramount.

In short, the surest way of ascertaining what is going to work best for your vehicle is to make an appointment with ARB and then sit down with a technician to discuss desired outcomes with tuned and integrated suspension kits.
