Old Man Emu 60047L Front Nitrocharger Sport Shock Absorber for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited with 3.5-5" Lift

Catalog #: 16091.1062
Old Man Emu Part #: 60047L
Description
Old Man Emu suspension systems have always focused on ride quality rather than ride height and this 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. You get to choose from a selection of shock absorbers for your application based on your load-carrying configuration, guaranteeing an immediate and ideal ride without any costly fine-tuning required post-installation. The monotube style main piston valving improves transition and direction changes while the extra base valving provides more fine-tuning for comfort and control. So, the new OME NitroCharger Sport feels like a monotube without the vulnerability or the high price tag.
Details

NEW CYLINDER END COMPRESSION STACK

  • Two extra discs added to the cylinder end compression stack.
  • Disc options include different thicknesses from 0.15 to 0.38mm and

different diameters including 8.5, 11.0, 13.0 and 16.75mm.

  • By using different diameter discs the mid range can be further divided

and fine tuned as a multistage compression stack.

Advantages

  • Extra discs allow for a more compliant stack that translates to a less

harsh, more rounded feel.

  • Multistaging the mid range allows creation of a softer, more compliant

primary stage and a heavier second stage to control the big hits.

NEW TEN DISC REBOUND STACK

  • Rebound controlled by oil flow over a new deflective disc stack.
  • Up to ten discs can be used to control rebound.
  • Discs range from 0.11 to 0.51mm in thickness and 14 to 30mm in

diameter.

  • Low speed control is determined by flow through the bleed

disc aperture - with 20 options from 0.15mm2 to 2.90mm2.

  • As with the cylinder end, different diameter discs can be

used to create multistaging within the stack.
Advantages

  • Ten discs allow almost infinite tuning options, resulting

in a refined ride for all road conditions.

  • Multistaging the mid range allows forgiving initial

control over small road imperfections, and
heavier more commanding control
when demanded.

NEW TEN DISC COMPRESSION STACK

  • Above the piston is an all new 10 disc compression stack.
  • The compression stack is constructed from the same components

available to the rebound stack - discs from 4.5 to 20 thou in thickness and 14
to 30mm in diameter are combined with 20 bleed options from 0.15mm2 to 2.90mm2.

Advantages

  • Ten discs on the compression side of the piston provide many tuning options and permit

management of oil flow back above the piston to give a refined, comfortable and well
controlled ride, particularly on change of direction.

NEW 35mm HIGH FLOW PISTON

  • New less restricted high flow piston design.
  • Teflon band for reduced friction.

Advantages

  • Less restricted design reduces heat generation

and aeration that may lead to fade.

  • Open apertures present more uniform flow to

the bleed discs and disc stacks for more
consistent control.

NEW TRIPLE LIP OIL SEAL

  • Latest evolution of dependable triple lip check

valve oil seal.

Advantages

  • Large durable seal incorporates new gas

retention check valve design to virtually
eliminate contaminant damage while providing
outstanding gas and oil retention.

  • Larger section withstands greater internal

pressures and higher temperatures.

NEW ROD GUIDE

  • New larger rod guide houses the new seal,

glacier bush and new slip ring.

Advantage

  • Refined rod guide design provides greater

support to the oil seal and increased reserve
tube volume for oil fill and gas expansion.

NEW SLIP RING

  • Teflon infused bronze slip

ring eliminates uncontrolled
bleed through the rod guide.

Advantage

  • Tight tolerances between

the rod and slip ring ensure
consistent and uniform
damping performance.

NEW DIRT SHIELD

  • New High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) dirt shield

Advantage

  • Impact Resistant - will not shatter, split or crack when subjected to offroad

debris thrown up by tyres.
