This is a full OME suspension kit. It includes the Springs, shocks and the steering damper.
The drive comfort is really nice.

Cheers

Question Old Man Emu ?

Blueraven, can you elaborate on this "Old Man Emu suspension" please. Never heard of this one before. Whats special about it ? An explanation would be very much appreciated boss Overall the Gypsy is a head turner in that blue hue, with a "dont mess with me front roo-bar" .

Hi Nikhil,
When you say OME suspension kit, do you mean the suspension that comes with a new vehicle? If yes, how can the drive comfort be nice? Or is this a suspension kit that is available at a MASS as an add-on/replacement to the stock setup?
Cheers,
Deepak

These are Australian suspension kits for the Gypsy (or Sierra as it is known there) They are direct bolt-ons.
The drive quality compared to stock is atleast 60% better.
Handling is also improved.

Nikhil
The gypsy got sold on Saturday ... so sorry cannot give a ride in it.
Got a good price - Maybe do another one up

From day one have been using they way it should be used!

Anyways here are some pictures. Please feel free to comment.

I might be wrong though, But doesn't the Gypsy come as the Suzuki Samurai SJ413 in UK etc Or the same vehicle is sold as Gypsy in India, Samuari in some countries and Sierra in others.

Also how much does this kit cost and where should a prospective customer look if they want to buy this kit?
thanks

Thanks for this information GB. I presumed OME to be something else
Is it possible to purchase this kit from Bangalore and at what price?
Cheers,
Deepak

Thanks GypsyBoy for the details

But this is quite a lot. So I guess that this mod would have to wait. Maybe a loong wait

Thanks! It does look pretty good, doesn't it!
Lol..

These are the same size I recommended for your gypsy (on your thread, a while ago) - 215/75/r15.. BUT, now I feel I should've gone in for 235's...
(although my tyre guy didn't have 235 in BFG)

Had i gone in for the 235's I would've had to change the rims to alloys.
Even with the 215s, teh front left tyre scrapes the leaf spring a bit, before full lock.
Surprisingly, this issue doesn't exist with the right hand side!

And yes - there is a specific reason for removing the bumper - the gypsy looks MEANER this way!
I really like this 'look' - the seller offered to put in the bumper, but I said no..

I just want to figure out a way to get rid of the rear bumper now.
Something which matches the front bar...
