Bushings: Quality oversized rubber bushings result in excellent longevity.
Shaft Guard: Replaceable, impact-resistant, high-density polyethylene shaft guard prevents damage to the shock absorber shaft from stones and other debris.
Piston Shaft: Hard chromed, ground piston shaft for the ultimate in strength and durability.
Adjustor: External, independent rebound and compression adjustment allows fine-tuning of ride comfort and control to suit the varying vehicle and trip requirements
Shock Absorber Body: 51mm bore 6061 grade aluminum shock absorber body with type III, hard-anodized finish for increased heat dissipation and corrosion resistance
Piggy Back Clamp: Remote reservoir piggyback clamp allows easy connection of the remote oil reservoir to the main shock absorber body.
The BP-51 is a user-adjustable internal bypass 4WD shock absorber that delivers increased comfort and control; both on and off-road.
All BP-51 shock absorbers are designed and manufactured in-house by ARB using state-of-the-art machining and hard anodizing equipment.
The body of a BP-51 shock absorber is manufactured using 6061 anodized aluminum to dissipate heat more efficiently than steel or alloy steel and provide superior corrosion resistance.
Extensive dyno, real-world and destructive testing has been undertaken during the development process to ensure that reliability, longevity, and performance all meet ARB’s impeccable standards.
