Ridewell Suspensions introduces the RCA-215 Flex-Mount auxiliary axle suspension with 22,500-lb capacity for vocational truck applications. The non-steerable, air-ride/air-lift unit offers a weight savings of 50-72 pounds over the company's 225 model.
The Flex-Mount is a flexible system that easily adjusts to various frame widths and ride heights. It offers a patented, contoured axle seat for secure axle connection without U-bolts. The design incorporates a new lightweight, double-bonded bushing. Wide beam spacing helps to reduce axle stresses.
Designed to accept an axle drop of up to 8", the Flex-Mount has 10¼" total travel with as much as 7" of lift. The suspension has axle alignment adjustment of 3/8" at each hanger. Options include axle integration and shock kits.
