Australia's unique driving conditions call for a different approach to shock absorber design. Invariably, vehicles are heavily loaded, fitted with accessories and driven on harsh Outback roads for prolonged periods. When developing shock absorbers, Old Man Emu takes all 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. This experience in setting the most appropriate valving is what really sets the Nitrocharger apart from its competitors. OME engineers have extensive knowledge in this field as they specialize in nothing else but 4WD suspension systems. When developing a shock absorber, consideration is given to both original equipment and OME springs. In many cases, several shock absorber applications will be listed for one vehicle to ensure the proper match regardless of spring selection, installed accessories or load carrying requirements. While OME Nitrochargers will improve overall ride performance when fitted with standard springs, more substantial benefits can be achieved when fitted in conjunction with OME springs. Improved ride, load carrying characteristics, and wheel travel are all benefits of such a combination.
Used by 4 wheelers throughout the world, OME Nitrochargers set the standard in ride comfort over any terrain and simply outperform the competition.
Fast shipping. Perfect shocks for tracker with 2” lift. A tiny bit stiff when unloaded but we usually have bikes/camping gear in the back

I ordered my shock online, and maybe it was my fault or the 4WP website match, but it didn’t fit. So two trips, twice the shop time, but they stuck with their quote. Thanks!

5.0Old Man Emu nitrocharger rear shocks
Perfect fit on ‘08 Tundra. Easy installation. I got 120k miles of hard use from my last pair without any failures. Coupled with air bags makes for dampened ride under heavy load. Smooths our washboard roads.
Night and day difference from the es9000 shocks I had on before. Shaft is bigger, bushings are huge, ride is so much smoother even with an add a leaf. Recommend worth every penny
I have a 1 1/2" lift on a 2004 f250 ford , will this work on it?

Sorry, ARB does not offer a shock for your vehicle application. I recommend the Bilstein 5100 series shock package. The Part Number: S/DShockingBIL5100 will give you two front and two rear shocks. Thank you.
DO YOU HAVE THE SPECS ON THIS SHOCK; IE LENGTH (EXTENDED AND COMPRESSED. WHAT ARE EQUIVALENTS FOR THIS SHOCK ON A 2005 WK. IT HAS THESE ON FRONT AND WOULD LIKE TO REPLACE FOR EXAPMPLE WITH SOME EQUIVALENT RANCHO OR KYB ... ANY SUGGESTIONS?
