ARB developed suspension kits to streamline the buying process by providing a vehicle-specific, integrated suspension system under one comprehensive part number. Now, ARB is expanding Old Man Emu kits to include Toyota 4Runner 2010-on, FJ Cruiser 2010-on, Tacoma 2005-on, and Tundra 2007-on applications.

Developed to add additional lift and enhanced ride comfort and quality, each new application is offered in either a medium- or heavy-load kit to curtail to the customer's needs. Each suspension kit includes all the necessary, durable components to take you off-road and back again with a comprehensive 3-year, 37,000-mile warranty.

Vehicles with KDSS must have 1 x OME95PF5 spacer installed on the driver’s side to maintain correct trim (included with kit).

No top mount bushing supplied, use OME3133. OE bushings may be reused if in good condition.

5.0 Great Lift

Purchased for my 2019 4Runner. While mine is stock right now, I do plan on adding a bumper and winch. That said, I went for the medium load. Quite a difference from stock. No more floating/sway. This setup is quite a bit firmer, but not uncomfortably so. It's what you'd expect from a lift for a 4WD. I have lost about one MPG in gas mileage. Again, what you'd expect from a lift. I can't speak to the ease of installation, as I had mine installed by a local 4WD shop. However, he told me it went on without any issues, and the vehicle aligned to specs. I would highly recommend this product.

5.0 Old Man EMU lift kit for Toyota 4-runner.

Very reliable kit; medium load is still much stiffer than OEM parts which I like but still great handling on highway and daily driving. I expected nothing less from ARB Old Man EMU. Very pleased and great price.
