Heavy Duty Four-Link by Ridetech

Heavy duty trucks are the perfect application for an air suspension. The weight load of these trucks can vary by several thousand pounds from trailers, people, or other cargo. With a traditional leaf spring suspension you are forced to endure a harsh ride quality when unloaded in order to accommodate any anticipated cargo when loaded. With air suspension, however, you can adjust the spring rate via air pressure to be appropriate for any cargo load, light or heavy. RideTech has introduced their new HD four-link rear suspension to fit a wide variety of heavy trucks. The HD four-link offers a huge improvement in not only ride quality, but also load capacity and handling performance as well. By virtue of its highly adaptable design and weld-on installation it will fit a wide range of ½-ton to 1-ton trucks. The HD four-link features 1.5-inch diameter 0.188-wall DOM link bars, large durable poly bushings, 2-inch diameter 0.250-wall tubing bridge, 0.250-inch-thick plate steel brackets, and Firestone air springs with a total load capacity of around 7,000 pounds. Popular options for the HD four-link include the new RideTech impact forged Mono-tube shocks, your choice of universal or model specific Panhard bar kits, and a variety of compressor and control systems to fit any budget or performance level. For more info on this system as well as the complete Ridetech line contact ’em at 812-481-4764, or visit ’em on the web at www.ridetech.com.
