Old Man Emu suspension components are perfect for those who want ride quality over 'show' quality. You may find taller or more heavily advertised suspension lifts on the market, but you will never find anything that ride more comfortably, has greater load capacity, or is more durable than Old Man Emu. If you truly are looking for the 'best' suspension and not just the most popular or one that temporarily sits a bit taller (most lifts sag quickly, not OME), then you have found the very best suspension on the planet for your Jeep.

With Old Man Emu, your ride quality improves immensely over stock and the plush ride will turn you off from lessor springs sold by more well-known companies with huge advertising budgets or cheap stiff coil lifts from the moment you try them. OME suspensions are widely regarded as the best engineered suspension on the market for any vehicle. Not necessarily the best choice for those looking to go extreme with super size tires and huge lifts. The OME system is a sensible lift height designed for maximum highway comfort and excellent offroadability.
Among the many great benefits of the OME suspensions, the spring rate is tailored to your vehicle and taste. One spring does not fit all, and OME understands this. This is why there is a choice of springs for guys running an 8 cyl engine up front, heavy winch bar, safari rack, oversized spare tire, etc. Customize your suspension and get it right the first time! OME also builds their shocks and struts specific to your Jeep. Its not a shock designed for a full size pickup truck that cross-references to your vehicle as well. It is built for the specific weight and suspension geometry of your vehicle for a comfortable ride on and offroad. As with the springs, various rates of dampening are also available with the OME shocks.

No other 4x4 shop that sells Old Man Emu lift kits can or will provide installation instructions for you.
Our installation manual can save an our or two on your installation time, which saves money, as well as helps to avoid installation which also cost time and money to sort out. Put another way, ordering the OME kit from any other company will result in higher installation cost... and a nose-down stance. Be wise, buy from Rocky Road.
These are ONLY available to Rocky Road customers... you're welcome!! ;^)
Sometimes assembling these struts can be challenging to impossible for folks who want a simple Do-It-Yourself home installation, or a faster professional. Rocky Road has the solution! Our kits now come with the option of pre-assembly which makes it so anyone can install the Old Man Emu lift on their own without special equipment.
Please note: Our Pre-Assembly options come with either the stock Jeep strut mount plus our 3/8" boost spacer, OR our Rocky Road manufactured Dead-Level strut mount system.
Our preassembled struts come with the new bushing/isolators. Pre-Assembly means...
Saves 1-2 hours during your suspension installation. Saves you or your mechanic money and time!
No specialized equipment needed during installation which means many can install this kit at home, and ANY mechanic can install this system!
All new strut caps and rubber isolators. No need to re-use your existing old rotting pieces for the strut assembly. Our kit gives you all new Jeep strut parts!
OME Grand Cherokee WK2 provide 1.5" of lift in the front and 2" in the rear over your current stock suspension position.
PLEASE NOTE: All Old Man Emu kits, sold thru any 4x4 shop leave the front of the Grand Cherokee low. Rocky Road HIGHLY RECOMMENDS our Leveling Trim Packer kit, or our DEAD-LEVEL OME Strut mounts.
-- The trim packer kit boosts your front end about 3/8" to offset the OME nose-down stance.
-- The DEAD-LEVEL OME Strut mounts will put your Jeep at a leveled stance with the OME springs. This kit is a whole new strut mount system, replacing the factory strut mounts which are normally used in the installation of any new spring lift.
Other shops don't have the level of experience we do with WK2 Grand Cherokees and so are unaware of this or ignore it, but the standard OME stance is lower in the front. Pick up our Leveling pieces to help correct this in the Optional Components selection of our purchasing section below.
We have a great deal more information on the actual construction of the springs and shocks. To view this excellent engineering FAQ, please click
