Ridewell introduces new air suspension drive axle

Posted on January 7, 2003

Ridewell Corp. introduced its economical, lightweight drive axle air-ride for light truck, transit, paratransit and shuttle applications. Model RAD-241H offers several features to enhance ride quality. It is equipped with oversized bushings for ride stability and long term durability on irregular and deteriorated road conditions. Load distribution is 70% supported on the air springs, 30% on the main pivot bushing. The unit's 3-link parallelogram trailing arm design with hinged axle seat provides constant pinion angle. Standard features include +/- 3/8" axle alignment at the beam and +/- 3/4" at the spindle, adjustable upper torque road for setting pinion angle, bolt-on axle mounting, rubber and urethane bushings and heavy-duty shock absorbers. The low-maintenance unit was recently designed to service the needs of maximum-loaded vehicles operating in high-traffic metropolitan areas in China.
