Overview

Note: Please review the application guide to confirm the correct part number for your aircraft.

The LORD® Fluid-Free Shimmy Damper offers high-performance damping with a maintenance-free design. It uses surface-effect technology to provide consistent damping for nose gears. Instead of using fluids to resist motion, our Shimmy Damper features a unique rubber formulation with a high-tech lubricant to absorb nose wheel shimmy. Since there is no fluid, this damper will not leak.

Accelerated life testing of the LORD Shimmy Damper has demonstrated that it provides targeted damping after over 5,000 ground-air-ground duty cycles. This represents a product life of more than 10 years of usage on a typical high-use aircraft.

NOTE: Installation hardware not included

LORD SHIMMY DAMPENER SE-1051-2

January 10, 2024

Everything worked as advertised. Came with all the hardware including several different sized washers, but hang on to your old ones as we needed an old worn extra thin one to get the right fit to eliminate slack. Thankfully we didnt need to replace any bushings.

Easy install. The bolts and bushings worked great. The pin was short, and had to use the longer one that we had on before because it was in good shape. Feels good on landing.
