Old Man Emu (OME) is pleased to release the latest application of BP-51 High Performance Internal Bypass Shock Absorbers engineered specifically for the Toyota Land Cruiser 80 Series. This package consists of 2 front shocks, 2 rear shocks and 2 fit kits. Two different lift versions will be available with the first version suitable for lifts up to 50mm (2 inch) and the second-long travel version suitable for lifts of 75-100mm (3 to 4 inch).

 
The shock for the 80 Series has been tuned specifically to the vehicle geometry, weight and OME coil springs. Extensive testing was conducted to ensure the vehicle has a high amount of roll control but still provides the plush ride of the BP-51 Shock Absorber. Extensive off road testing was also conducted to ensure that the vehicle can handle a wide variety of terrain for years to come.
 
The front shock has been designed with a simple reservoir bracket that mounts to the top of the spring tower of all 80 Series models. The rear shocks have been designed with a simple bracket that mounts to the chassis rail. Recommended compression and rebound settings can be found in the supplied fitting instructions for loading scenarios that utilize the various spring options available. The fitting instructions include detailed information for correct installation of the shock absorber and reservoir placement.
