Ridewell Suspensions’ RCA-215 flex-mount auxiliary axle suspension is engineered with a 22,500-pound capacity for vocational truck applications.

The non-steerable, air-ride/air-lift unit – which offers a weight savings of 50-72 pounds over the company’s 225 model – is a flexible system engineered to adjust easily to various frame widths and ride heights. The design – which offers a patented, contoured axle seat for secure axle connection without U-bolts – incorporates a lightweight, double-bonded bushing. Wide beam spacing helps to reduce axle stresses.

The Flex-Mount, designed to accept axle drop of up to 8 inches, has 10/-inch total travel with as much as 7 inches of lift, and the suspension has an axle alignment adjustment of 3/8 inches at each hanger. Options include axle integration and shock kits.
