Western Star is now offering Neway ADZ Series heavy-duty drive-axle air suspensions by SAF-Holland as an option for its 4800, 4900 and 6900 truck models.
The ADZ Series suspensions feature a streamlined design that has reduced weight by more than 220 lb per axle compared to previous models, says the truck maker. The new, more durable suspensions are aimed at severe-duty and heavy-duty vocational applications, and the weight savings can contribute to increased payload and operating efficiencies.
New features include an integral lower control arm module that improves roll stability for high-center-of-gravity loads.
The ADZ Series suspensions are available in single, tandem and tridem axle configurations, ranging from 23,000 to 78,000 lb.
