OME SUSPENSION SYSTEMS:
Aftermarket 4WD suspension is extremely complex. Determining the right solution for your vehicle and your
requirements demands special attention to many factors. Unlike numerous aftermarket suspension systems,
which are only available in a single configuration targeting lift height, OME offers a range of tuned and
matched integrated suspension systems to ensure the right suspension is available to suit how the vehicle
is outfitted and the conditions it will encounter. Kit numbers have been created for the 2011+ trucks, allowing
for easy ordering of all the components needed to reach 3 unique heights. Individual components are also
available for purchase in the traditional Old Man Emu fitment style.
DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT:
The OME Engineers objective was to develop an integrated suspension system for the later model Ford F250
and F350 Super Duty models. Areas considered when developing the suspension system for the F250/350
were lift and load carrying, but particular attention was paid to improving the ride quality. The Ford F250/350
runs a traditional full size truck suspension set up consisting of front and rear live axles. The individual
components consist of coil spring, shock absorber, radius arms and track bar (panhard rod). The rear
suspension set up consists of leaf spring and shock absorber. When lifting this type of suspension geometry
consideration was needed to be given to caster, lateral position of front axle and steering geometry. Once
ride height was determined it was also important to consider any potential areas that need to be addressed
by increasing travel.
