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 front coilovers are adjustable in height, the system has been designed for a 2 inch (50mm) ride height increase and a minimum of 2 inch (50 mm) down travel.
Currently Availabile for Purchase 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 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. Please note there is a left hand and right hand application due to the different reservoir mounting method and locations.

** For medium load spring removal of 3rd leaf is required / For constant 300kg spring Extra Leaf is required to be addedPlease note that due to the size and weight these leafs springs they do not come boxed or wrapped from the manufacturer and they ship out to the consumer in the same fashion. It is not uncommon to receive these with scratches on them as well as scratches will occur while they are in use under the vehicle. The packs can be taken apart and painted if the consumer so chooses. Be sure to keep track of the proper orientation of the leafs should you disassemble them. Also it is common for leaf packs to squeak. Though there are anti-squeak pads in place, noise can still occur. It is the nature of metal whenever it comes in contact with metal. There are some ways to help reduce the amount of noise however it is not a guarantee.
