New 4Runner Lift Kit | Old Man Emu BP-51


Today we are installing the new BP51 lift kit from Old Man Emu. Perhaps you have never heard of Old Man Emu (OME) but I am sure you have heard of their parent company, ARB. ARB is a massive company from Australia and has been making OffRoad products since 1975. In 1988 ARB acquired OME suspension one of the most advanced manufactures of suspension systems around the world. In 2015 OME release the BP51 series witch offers the ultimate in both comfort and control.

The BP51 is one of the most advanced bypass shock absorbers today. Unlike most other manufacturers it allows onvehicle adjustability of both rebound and compression. It also has massive advancements on the bypass design letting with a separate passage past the piston to the bypass reservoir. This results in the ability of the shock absorber to provide the best of both worlds. Letting you tailor your vehicle to your individual needs all while not sacrificing comfort.

The BP51 is vehiclespecific utilizing existing mounting locations witch means this installation is going to be quite simple and straightforward.

Unfortunately, I didn't get any video of installing the reservoir on the front driverside. But Trail4r has a wonderful blog post about the entire install and covers that section great.'>
