Hendrickson has added an Equalizing Beam to its Genuine Parts portfolio, complete with rotating bar pin bushing for a quick and easy installation.

The Genuine Parts Equalizing Beam is the same beam used in production, providing structural integrity and functionality to maintain original system performance, according to Hendrickson. The part is robotically welded to deliver consistent and accurate weld penetration and improve service life.

The rotating bar pin bushing uses the same proprietary rubber material and bonding composition as the standard end bushing in order to support longer component life. Once under load, the rotating bar pin will lock into place. This feature is also designed to eliminate inner bushing wear to improve component service life.

 “Our patented Rotating Bar Pin End Bushing allows you to adjust the angle of the pin to match the axle pinion angle for a quick and easy beam installation.  Uptime is paramount in this industry, and this new product offering will enable the technician to service the vehicle right the first time,” said David McCleave, director of aftermarket for Hendrickson.
