The Old Man Emu suspensions are not typically noted as a lift kit. They are usually regarded as suspensions systems. However, depending on vehicle weight and application, a lift of 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 can be gained. Many lift kits require a sacrifice of ride quality for off-road performance, but Old Man Emu is able to combine both to give outstanding ride quality with excellent spring articulation. Old Man Emu recommends using 31 tires for best performance.

What if I want to run this kit with an XJ 44 axle?

Asked by mackxj2wj1 from Fairhope, Al on

Hello Mack, The only thing different for this ARB Old Man Emu Lift kit would be that you would have to buy Dana M44 U-bolts since they are a different size. Every thing else should be the same. Thanks!

Answered by Bob H from Fairhope, Al on

As pictured, this kit comes COMPLETE, with leaf spring rubber bushings, u-bolts w/nuts for Dana35, t-case drop, trim coil spacers, shocks and full leaf packs...IS THIS CORRECT?.

Asked by Al from Fredericksburg, VA on

Al this is a kit we put together here at 4WD. It will include: 2 front coils 2 leaf springs 2 (N35) front shocks 2 (N36) rear shocks 1 transfer case spacer kit 2 front 10MM trim spacers 2 rear main eye bushings 2 shackle bushings 4 spring u bolts with nuts. The only way we could have made this a more complete kit was if we put a mechanic in there. Which after we forgot the holes in the box last time, those guys don't want to go anymore.
