Fully integrated 4x4 suspension systems for Ford Explorer V6 Leaf Spring Models 1996-2001

Problems with your Ford Explorer's leaf spring suspension sagging, does your Explorer have handling problems and an uncomfortable ride these can be common concerns for vehicle owners with standard suspension. Our OME & ARB products address these problems our engineers have developed suspension systems that cater to your specific vehicle characteristics. Our renowned team of engineers, who design and test every element of the suspension system - a practice unique to our products. Our kits include carefully matched spring and shock combinations engineered to improve vehicle ride quality, handling and control under various loads. We recommend you change both shock and springs at the same time. Special attention is given to improving suspension travel without adversely affecting driveline and steering geometry. In most cases, multiple spring rates and shock valving characteristics are available for each application to accommodate vehicle variations and driving preferences. Although ride height and tire size are taken into consideration with each system, the emphasis is placed on vehicle performance and versatility.

By installing a fully integrated 4x4 suspension system, you can dramatically improve the safety and handling of your vehicle. ARB manufactures these suspension replacement parts in Australia. These suspension parts are designed to replace the original factory springs, shocks, polyurethane bushings, steering stabilizer for some application Ubolts and shackles, greasable shackles & pins are available. ARB components are designed to use your existing mounts.

You purchase our EMU Nitrocharge Shock Absorbers and you get:

Giant 18mm Chromed Shaft — Indestructible for rugged off roading. Induction hardened then hard chromed to a superfine finish.
Nitrogen Gas — The gas pressure keeps the oil cohesive under all conditions.
Twin Tube Design — New 33% thicker outer tube insures that rocks do not damage internal operating components. This design also allows for a greater volume of oil which keeps the shock cooler.
35MM Seven Stage Compression Valve — Delivers all the subtleties of compression rates for the best ride and handling.
Check Valve Seal — The latest in seal technology, this shaft seal significantly improves gas retention while offering excellent longevity.
Glacier Bush — A Teflon coated rod guide bushing significantly reduces heat build up in the god guide area, developed for the Emu” off road racing program.
Giant 35mm Teflon Banded Piston — A new four stage coil sprung rebound valve system to control vehicle bounce.
Supplementary Welds — On all mounting eves and pins for maximum shock absorber mount strength.
Stoneguard — Protects oil seal and piston rod against stone and dirt damage.
Warranty — 2 year 25,000 mile warranty for material and workmanship.

You purchase our advance designed Leaf Springs and you get:

Flat axle seat area — Lowers spring stress while retaining spring free camber height. Unique to most OME springs.
Anti Friction Inter Leaf Liners — Used where applicable to reduce friction between spring leaves giving better ride comfort and increase spring life.
Shot Peened — On the tension side of all leaves to double spring life.
Draw Tapered and Diamond Cut Leaves — For reduced interleaf friction and improved load distribution in the load bearing area.
Graphite Coated — For further reduced friction.
Military Wrapped — For extra safety (where installation permits).
Loose Clamped — For smoother and quiet operation.

In addition to providing lifts ARB Suspension enhances ride quality, articulation and longevity. Package includes polyurethane bushings springs, greasable shackles & pins, gas shocks and steering stabilizer (sway bar extenders when applicable). For the front of the Explorer we provide improved shock design, for the rear Medium Load rated leaf springs providing 1.5" of lift and matching shock are available to improve your Explorers performance.

Advanced engineering and manufacturing technology bring better suspension performance to your Ford Explorer

Benefits of selecting ARB Leaf springs for your application are:

Consistency ARB coil springs are formed on precision mandrels and manufactured to the highest standards. A scragging process is performed before and after the coils are shot peened to reduce stress and prevent sagging.

Diversity Constant and variable rate coils are available to suit a wide variety of applications — even those you thought were impossible.

Quality Coil spring end configurations are designed to exact specifications guaranteeing perfect fitment to your vehicle, while a durable powder coat finish provides a quality appearance for years

Below you will find detailed application information on both the front and rear suspension parts, springs, shocks and accessories components for your specific vehicle. You will note that springs and shocks are provided for different load rating, to support your specific application, allowing you the additional capability if you have changed the engine, installed a larger bumper or winch. If you haul heavier loads or you just want to replace the sagging OEM springs these ARB components are for you.

Remarks:        
(1) Adjust front torsion bar for additional height after installing rear springs. Set ride height to 1/3 upper bump stop clearance and 2/3 lower bump stop clearance .
(2) OE rubber leaf spring bushings are used to isolate road noise. Install original bushings from OE Springs if they are in good condition, or source new OE bushings from dealership.
(3) Extra Leaf can be fitted when a constant 440lbs is carried

* First part number gives firmer ride for: FRONT- Increased axle weight eg: diesel, bullbar, winch. REAR- regular load carriers and those who prefer a positive feel.
