  • Old Man Emu Nitrocharger Long Travel Sport Shocks provide great ride quality
  • Dual Rate Coils give you stability and comfort that far exceeds single rate or progressive coils.
  • Extended brake lines are longer then typical lines on a 3.5" kit
  • Duroflex Control Arms provide the best possible flex and ride quality on and off road. (Video)
  • Adjustable bump stops ensure you'll have the correct bump every time.
  • Fully Adjustable Solid Chromoly front track bar increases ride stabily


Old Man Emu's new line of shock absorbers includes some of the latest shock valving technology achieving a whole new level of ride quality.

Most dual and monotube shocks typically feature a two-stage valving process, the new OME NitroCharger Sport features a triple-stage valving process rivaled only by a remote canister adjustable shock.

These have been stacked it into the most durable shock body and adjusted it by load capacity for you.

So, rather than offering a single adjustable shock, the OME engineers have done all of the testing and tuning adjustments for you.

Product Features


TJ/LJ Front Coil Springs - Pair


  • Two-stage Leaf Pack: Featured on rear leaf springs for compliant, comfort on road and unsurpassed load handling when pushed to the limits. When unladen the vehicle is largely riding on the softer 1st stage of the spring, the secondary stage provides additional support under heavy compression. 
  • Overload leafs add anti-spring wrap and ensures the leaf works within the optimal compression loads.
  • Draw Tapered & Diamond Cut Leaves: Ensure loads are progressively distributed over a larger surface area and reduce the high stresses that develop at leaf spring ends. This improves ride quality, protects against leaf breakage, and significantly increases the spring life.
  • Bolt Clamps & Liners: Leaf clamps are bolted to allow installation of anti-squeak nylon liners.
  • Fully Scragged & Load Tested: Scragging ensures the spring takes a permanent 'set' which reduces the risk of sagging. Load testing ensures the spring meets the required specification.
  • Graphite Coating: To further reduce the friction between the spring leaves & friction pads.
  • Anti-Friction Pads: Re-greasable nylon interleaf liners reduce friction at the leaf tips where the load is the greatest.
  • Flat Axle Seat Area: Provides a flat axle mount to the spring plates reducing spring stress & increasing spring life.
  • Shot Peening: The tension side of all leaves are shot peened to reduce spring stress. This process can double the life of a spring.


Formed for ultimate Up-Travel & Down-Travel we built it out of Solid Chromoly for
unprecedented strength and improved ride stability.
