ARB 4x4 Accessories is bringing racing technology to your adventures. The OME BP-51 shock absorbers feature revolutionary, patent-pending technology developed by the Old Man Emu engineers to deliver unparalleled on and off road performance.

This application of OME BP-51 High Performance Bypass Shock Absorbers has been engineered specifically for the Toyota FJ Cruiser model years 2010 through 2014. Consisting of 2 coil overs, 2 shocks and 2 fits kits, this application does contain left and right side specific coil overs.

This kit comes with the following components:

  • (x1) Part # BP5190002R (Passenger Side BP-51 Coil Over)
  • (x1) Part # BP5190002L (Driver Side BP-51 Coil Over)
  • (x1) Part # 2895E (Rear Coil Springs - Light/Stock Weight Rated)
  • (x2) Part # BP5160002 (Rear BP-51 Piggyback Shocks)
  • (x1) Part # VM80010008 (Front Mount Kit)
  • (x1) Part # VM80010010 (Rear Mount Kit)
  • (x1) Part # 217615 (OME BP-51 Water Bottle)

The resulting height gain for the FJ Cruiser, when paired with the appropriate rear coils, will be 2.5 to 3 inches of lift. Rear shock absorbers have been tuned to match the existing range of rear Old Man Emu springs and recommended compression and rebound settings can be found in the supplied fitting instructions for the various spring options available. The fitting instructions also include detailed information for correct installation of the shock absorber and reservoir placement.

It is worth noting the coil overs are preloaded with an Old Man Emu coil and are set to the appropriate lift height for vehicle’s with a bumper and winch. If these are being fitted to a vehicle without a bumper and winch, the spring preload will need to be adjusted to compensate for a lighter total vehicle weight. The use of the new BP-51 Spring Compressor Tool kit (VM800200001) will make this adjustment easier and minimize the possibiliity of damaging the coil.

Developed and extensively tested under the harshest conditions in Australia, these big bore, position sensitive bypass
shock absorbers with remote reservoir are designed to bolt onto your vehicle without any vehicle modifications and
combine considerable ride comfort around town with significant amounts of end-zone damping for exceptional chassis
control and handling off road.

The damping performance is easily adjustable across a wide range in both rebound and compression, resulting in significant changes to the ride performance of your vehicle, enabling a custom tune to suit the conditions and vehicle set up.

The body, reservoir and components are all made from 6061 T6 aluminium, Type 3 40 micron hard anodised ensuring exceptional heat dissipation, corrosion resistance and resistance to stone damage. Not only designed, developed and tested entirely by ARB’s team of Old Man Emu ride engineers, all BP-51 shock absorbers are manufactured in-house by ARB. In order to achieve this, significant investment has been made in state of the art machinery and hard anodising equipment, allowing ARB total control of the manufacturing process to ensure the highest possible quality.

The OME engineers were set a challenge to design a high performance shock absorber for the modern day vehicle.  With more and more vehicles moving to an independent front suspension set up, the challenge grows as you have limited travel and restrictions to what you can actually fit within a coil over strut set up. With traditional velocity sensitive shock absorbers, achieving exceptional ride quality and the balance between comfort and control tuning requires a great deal of time and effort, with many valving changes required to get the balance correct.  You still end up with a compromise with either a slightly firmer controlled set up or softer comfort orientated result.  

Bypass technology exists to overcome some of these ride quality challenges but presents a new challenge as traditional multiple bypass tube products simply won’t fit inside a coil over independent front or many rear shock absorber applications.

Other areas that had to be considered were corrosion, heat dissipation, durability and how do you cater for individual ride preferences or vehicle loading scenarios.  The product also needs to easily bolt into a large range of vehicle applications without modifications to the actual vehicle.After 4 years of extensive design, development and testing the challenge has been met and it is the new BP-51.
