2005+ Toyota Tacoma OME BP-51 Internal Bypass Suspension System

Complete 2005+ Toyota Tacoma BP-51 Suspension Kit (OMETAC16BP51B)

Complete 2005+ Toyota Tacoma BP-51 Suspension Kit (OMETAC16BP51B)

Old Man Emu is pleased to release the latest application of BP-51 high performance bypass shock absorbers engineered specifically for the Toyota Tacoma.

Although there are subtle weight differences between the last generation Tacoma and the new generation, with the adjustable nature of the BP-51 the OME engineers have been able to tune and design the BP-51 package to suit both applications. This package consists of 2 front coilovers, 2 rear shock absorbers and 2 fit kits.

The front coilovers have been tuned in both length and feel specifically to the Tacoma and are capable of accommodating setups with and without accessories (bumpers, winch, etc). Specific reservoir brackets have been designed for application specific reservoir placement and also relocation of the sway bar to allow clearance at the spring seat. While the coilovers are adjustable in height, the system has been designed for a 2″ (50mm) ride height increase and a minimum of 2″ (50mm) down travel.

Rear shock absorbers have been tuned in length and valving specific to the Tacoma. To accommodate the large body size of BP-51 a specific lower mount bracket has been developed to provide clearance to the axle. Specific reservoir brackets have also been developed and are included in the rear fit kit. The rear dampers are tuned to match the existing range of rear Old Man Emu leaf springs.

Recommended compression and rebound settings can be found in the supplied fitting instructions for the various spring options available. The fitting instructions include detailed information for correct installation of the shock absorber and reservoir placement.

ARB RELEASES NEW HIGH PERFORMANCE OME BP-51 BYPASS ABSORBERS

AFTER 4YEARS IN DEVELOPMENT, ARB CORPORATION LTD IS EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE A REVOLUTIONARY A NEW SUSPENSION SYSTEM, THE OME BP–51 HIGH PERFORMANCE SHOCK ABSORBERS.

ARB 4×4 Accessories, the company that revolutionized the 4×4 world with the Air Locker selectable differential, has now transformed the suspension world with the introduction of the Old Man Emu BP-51 High Performance Bypass Shock Absorbers. 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.

ARB OME BP-51 High Performance Internal Bypass Shock Absorbers

Developed and tested extensively in some of Australia’s most rugged environments, these big bore, position sensitive bypass shock absorbers with remote reservoir are designed to be fitted without any need for vehicle modification. This design combines considerable ride comfort around town with significant amounts of end-zone damping for exceptional chassis control and handling off road. In addition to the velocity sensitive damping which used in most shock absorbers, where the faster the piston moves, the higher the level of damping is generated, BP-51 shock absorbers also generate damping dependent on the position of the piston within the shock absorber’s body via their internal bypass design.

This bypass design results in an ability for the shock absorber to provide the best of both worlds, a comfortable and compliant ride during normal driving and a more controlled ride over challenging terrain. With greater levels of damping generated at each end of the stroke, the piston slows as it approaches full compression and extension, preventing harsh topping out against the bump stop and allowing large bumps and corrugations to be easily absorbed.

Damping performance is easily adjustable across a wide range in both rebound and compression, allowing the user to alter the vehicle’s ride performance and cater for different road conditions and vehicle loading scenarios.

The body, reservoir and components are all made from aircraft grade (6061 T6) aluminum, with a type 3, 40 micron hard anodized finish, ensuring exceptional heat dissipation and resistance to corrosion and stone damage.

ARB OME BP-51 High Performance Internal Bypass Shock Absorbers

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 anodizing equipment, allowing ARB total control of the manufacturing process to ensure the highest possible quality.

Shock absorber and coil over assemblies will be competitively priced with vehicle specific fitting kits at an additional cost. These fitting kits will allow the mounting of the external reservoir in vehicle-specifc location, creating a clean and straightforward solution to a traditional challenge of other reservoir systems.

The coilover applications come pre-loaded with the appropriate coil spring and are adjusted to the proper height for vehicles equipped with a bumper and winch (heavy load). If a vehicle does not have additional weight on the front end, the preload on the springs can be adjusted to the appropriate levels. ARB recommends that this is done using the BP- 51 Spring Compressor Tool (VM80020001). Some applications will have side specific part numbers (left/right) due to the location of the external reservoir.

In North America, the initial applications of Jeep JK Wrangler, FJ Cruiser (2010-2014), Toyota 200 Series and HiLux 2005+ will be available late summer 2015 with other applications rolled out in the months following. Soon to be released applications will include the Toyota Tacoma, Toyota 4Runner (2010+), and Toyota FJ Cruiser (2007-2009).

FEATURES:

  • Bypass technology with remote reservoir
  • Vehicle specific applications
  • Independently adjustable for both rebound and compression
  • Hard anodized, aircraft grade (6061 T6) aluminum body, reservoir and components
