LOUISVILLE, Ky. – ArvinMeritor is adding a second trailer air suspension system to its product line, a single axle/fabricated design for specialized vocational trailers.

The new suspension system, called the FS Series, joins the company’s RHP Series in the family of RideStar Suspension Systems, the new name for Meritor’s suspension product line.

The RideStar FS Series is aimed at trailers operating in specialized vocational markets, such as flatbeds, tankers, auto haulers, and lowboy trailers. It’s scheduled to finish field-testing in coming months with sales slated to commence this fall. The patent-pending design uses interleaf shims for fore/aft stiffness versus other single bushing designs. Its narrower design also saves weight and bulk. n
