1 x Old Man Emu Discovery 1 Pin/Pin Fitment Steering Damper
Part Number:- GL1162, Old Man Emu Discovery 1 Pin/Pin Steering Damper
Manufacturer:- Old Man Emu
Fits:- Discovery 1 and Range Rover Classic
Weight :- 2.5 KG
This is a direct replacement steering damper to suit fitment onto the rear Track Rod Bar of a Discovery 1 and Range Rover Classic.
If you are fitting our SUMOBAR steering bars we would recommend you relocate your Steering Damper onto the front Drag Link Bar the same as it is on a Defender.
For an early up to 1994 with Swan Neck Steering Box Drop Arm please use this relocation kit SUMO-GL80RHD–GL78.
For late from 1994 with Straight Steering Box Drop Arm we would recommend using a Defender fitment Eye/Pin Steering Damper mounted to this kit SUMO-GL79RHD-GL78, please see this kit for the advantages of using a Defender Steering Damper on your Late Discovery 1 / RRC.
This is a quality Foam Cell Steering Damper made by Old Man Emu, unlike Gas Charged Steering Dampers these do not extend on their own making fitment easier.
They have equal 50/50 valving on both compression and extension stroke.
They have 8 1/4 inches of travel.
We replace the supplied open nuts with Nyloc Nuts to eliminate the risk of the nuts coming undone in use.
Please Note:- When fitting with one of our Discovery 1 Steering Damper Relocation kits it is the end with a metal shroud that is to be fitted to the chassis side mount.
Do not over-tighten the pin end of the steering damper as it will over compress the bushes causing the bushes to crack and maybe causing the mounting to flex and break. All our steering dampers come with nylock nuts, so there is no need to over tighten them.
As another integral component of Old Man Emu’s 4WD suspension range, steering stabilisers are designed to reduce the effect of wheel vibration and improve the feel, handling and control of the vehicle. They will also reduce the aggressive rotation of the steering wheel over rough roads without affecting steering wheel return.
- 9 stage valving: for optimum performance
- 15mm piston rod: stronger than the original
- Steel stone guard: protects the piston rod against stone damage
- 35mm piston and bore: increased oil volume
- Twin tube design: protects the internal components against stone damage
- Multi lip seal: prevents oil loss
- Original mounts: for ease of installation original stabiliser mounts are used where appropriate
To protect your steering dampers from stone chips we would recommend fitting this clear heat shrink – Part Number – GL1249
