Hendrickson Truck Suspension Systems announced that its weight-saving HTB LT rear air suspension is now available on International ProStar trucks. The non-torque reactive rear air suspension saves up to 263 pounds compared to industry standard 40,000 pound suspensions, Hendrickson says.

The HTB LT’s weight savings come from the design’s parallelogram geometry, which eliminates leaf springs and reduces components for additional weight savings, and the suspension’s torque box system improves multi-axial stability and control, Hendrickson says.
