Got Questions? Hendrickson Ride Solutions

Q. What types of trends do you see with air suspensions in the future?

A. As more equipment is added to the truck or trailer to meet new regulations, the overall vehicle weight continues to be a prominent factor, which drives us towards increasingly lighter designs that do not sacrifice durability. Fleets are also looking for ways to reduce operating costs, which drives us to develop new ways to extend component life and reduce maintenance requirements.

Eliminating suspension wear components, such as shock absorbers, eliminates a periodic maintenance issue. Long-life wheel end equipment can extend the time required between maintenance requirements. Suspension option development, such as advanced tire pressure maintenance systems, can help extend tire life and the life of suspension-related components.
