Western Star is now offering SAF-Holland Neway ADZ series heavy-duty drive axle air suspensions as an option for its 4800, 4900 and 6900 truck models.

The ADZ series suspensions are 200 pounds lighter per axle than previous models, and Western Star says that the weight savings can contribute to increased payload and operating efficiency.

The new, more durable suspensions are ideal for severe-duty and heavy-duty vocational applications, according to the company.

The suspension features an Integral Lower Control arm module for improving roll stability when loads have a high center of gravity.

The ADZ Series suspensions are available in single, tandem and tridem axle configurations ranging from 23,000 to 78,000 pounds.
