In Focus: Suspensions

user-gravatar Headshot

As we noted in “Suspensions – Part 1” (for trucks and tractors, May 2004), spec’ing the right suspension is critical, since it must: support vertical loads; transfer longitudinal, acceleration and deceleration forces between axles and frame; provide chassis isolation or cushioning from axle motions; maintain wheel location and attitude; and provide stability or rollover resistance.

This month, we provide a sampling of trailer suspensions, organized by supplier.

Check out CCJ’s Savvy Spec’ing book (page 29), determine which types of suspensions are right for your operation, then browse through these latest product offerings to find something ideal for your application.
