Old Man Emu MT64 Shock Absorbers: Elevate Your Overland Adventure Experience!

Advanced, Durable, Smooth, Adaptable, Essential

Imagine a road — maybe it's one of those long winding paths through the Appalachian Mountains or an uncharted path in the Australian outback. The kind of road that promises both a challenge and a journey, one that begs you to question whether your vehicle is up to the task. The road itself isn't the only variable. You've got a camper on your back, a tent, or perhaps other gear, shifting the dynamics of the drive. For roads like these, you need more than just an average shock absorber.

Enter the MT64 shock absorbers by Old Man Emu. Crafted for the discerning traveler who demands more from their journey, the MT64 isn’t just a shock absorber; it's a game-changer. Its unique moniker isn't just fancy nomenclature; it's descriptive. MT, denoting its monotube design, and 64 indicating its sizable 64mm internal bore diameter.

These shock absorbers are engineered with the intrepid overlander in mind. They're built for vehicles that might have shifting loads, courtesy of campers, tents, or racks. That means they're geared to ensure stability, no matter how your load shifts — from the front, the back, side to side.

The monotube design is a testament to innovation and superior engineering. While the twin tube is no doubt a competent technology, the monotube, with its expansive single body, allows for a significantly larger oil volume. More oil and the absence of a second internal tube means better performance, reduced shock fade, and a superior ability for engineers to tune it just right.

The MT64’s construction ensures longevity and peak performance. Crafted from aerospace-grade aluminum, these shocks are not only durable but incredibly effective at dissipating heat. And if you're worried about unexpected jolts, the hydraulic end zone top out has got you covered, providing added cushioning at full extension.

It’s a dynamic world, and your travel needs might change from one trip to another. With that in mind, the MT64 comes with an adjustable spring seat. Whether you're carrying different weights or adding and removing accessories, this adjustability ensures you're always riding at the optimal height.

Performance aside, let's talk about the ride. For those of us who've spent hours on the road, the quality of the ride is paramount. The MT64 promises and delivers a refined ride. Due to its unique construction and the increased oil volume, it provides consistent performance over varying temperatures, ensuring you can keep going as long as the road calls.

Incorporating Noise, Vibration, Harshness (NVH) compliance, the MT64 isn’t just about durability; it's about comfort. It's for those who don’t want to be jolted out of their reverie by every bump in the road. It’s for those who understand that the journey is as significant as the destination.

For the traveler ready to tackle the road, irrespective of the challenges it throws, the MT64 offers more than just a shock absorber; it offers peace of mind. So, the next time you're contemplating a journey, remember that with the MT64, it’s not just about where you're going, but how you get there. And trust me; it’s a ride you won’t forget. Safe travels.



  1. Monotube Design: Allows for a larger oil volume, which not only reduces shock fade but offers a broader scope for tuning.
  2. 64mm Internal Bore Diameter: The massive bore offers a more significant amount of oil inside the shock absorber.
  3. Engineered for Shifting Loads: Specifically crafted for vehicles equipped with campers, tents, and other shifting weights.
  4. Adjustable Spring Seat: This feature allows for different loads, accommodating various accessory weights.
  5. Aerospace-Grade Aluminum Construction: Offers durability while effectively dissipating heat.
  6. Hydraulic End Zone Top Out: Ensures smoother rides even during unexpected jolts by providing cushioning at the shock's full extension.
  7. Unrivaled NVH (Noise, Vibration, Harshness) Compliance: This ensures a smoother ride with limited feedback through the suspension components.
  8. Consistent Performance over Various Temperatures: Due to the large internal oil volume, it ensures a smooth ride no matter the outside conditions.
  9. Anodized Aluminum Body: Dissipates heat up to 15x faster than steel and offers corrosion resistance.


  1. Complexity for Casual Users: The product, while feature-rich, might be over-engineered for casual or city users who might not require such advanced capabilities.
  2. Price Point: Given the advanced features and materials used, the MT64 might be priced higher than basic shock absorbers.
  3. Tuning Requirement for Optimal Performance: While the shock absorber offers a broad scope for tuning, achieving the optimal tuning might require specialized knowledge or professional help.
