Hi all, has anyone retro fitted their shocks on a UEV490 to Old Man Emu ?
Currently running tough dog shocks & Dobson springs.
Any comments, suggestions & part numbers would be great πŸ‘πŸΌ

Hi Adam

Can't help with any part numbers. Any reason you want to change from what you are already running.
My 490 is 3 years old I've done plenty of trips over dirt roads and no probs so far.
Only just thinking of replasing shocky rubbers 

Cheers

The bushes are definitely shot, so I thought it would be best to change the shock as well, called conqueror HO & they said I can wait for some from SA or just call OmE they would be able to size them up.i don’t mind OME & they are oz made so it seemed like a good idea....
I think my 490 sways a bit to much around corners & but when I push the side of it seems to go back to position within 3 rocks ( if you know what I mean ).
I think I will go with red neoprene bushes when I do replace them, I heard they are better ? Are there good brands of bushes & who sells them. TIA.

Hi Adam

I went to ome a couple of years ago and they have been okay.

The part number off the top of the box is 60117

I was horrified at the amount of body roll my 490 had when I first started towing but soon got used to it and after several big trips over the N.T and huge Darwin to Melbourne & back run over all types of terrain i am more than happy with the tough dogs. Initially was doing exactly as you are , looking at the OME options but soon changed my mind. Read through the forum there is heaps of info Spada has some excellent info & Nolathane bush part numbers heres a link
Check your Shock Absorbers 
or search under Bushes,  Good luck either way.
Cheers
