Surrey Off-Road Specialists Limited
Old Man Emu

Australia's award winning suspension systems

"Sagging suspension, a harsh ride and uncomfortable ride on road and lack of wheel travel off road are just some of the problems which are experienced by four wheel drivers with standard suspension systems.

4WD vehicle manufactures are often forced to compromise on their suspension designs because their vehicles have to cater to a very wide customer base. From city driving and general family use to the extremes of off road and heavy load carrying applications of mining companies, standard suspension just cannot cope with all the needs of these individual applications.

Old Man Emu suspension are designed, tested and built in Australia. Four wheel drivers everywhere should expect a system which will provide the load carrying requirements for work; increased wheel travel for use off road; and ride suppleness to eliminate the harshness of dirt track washboard roads, choppy city streets and freeway hop.

Old Man Emu suspension systems are built to do just that."

"Driving a vehicle equipped with Bilstein Gas Pressure Shock Absorbers is an exhilarating experience. There is, quite literally, nothing like it. Unbelievable control and stability. Precise handling. Ultimate performance. And incredible comfort.

Since our inception over 40 years ago, Bilstein has been a unique and driving force in the automotive suspension industry. Bilstein was first to apply the patented gas pressure principle to controlling ride characteristics on automobiles and introduced the world's first monotube gas pressure shock absorber. Today, Bilstein continues to be the leader in monotube gas pressure shock absorber technology. No other shock manufacturer has been able to equal the performance and enhanced ride characteristics of Bilstein. The Bilstein name graces not only monotube gas pressure shock absorbers, but also single and twin tube Macpherson strut style suspensions."
