LOUISVILLE, Ky. Dana Corporation’s Commercial Vehicle Systems Division has introduced the Dana Spicer RF Series Air Ride Trailer Suspension module for flatbed and tanker trailers.

Dana is offering the suspension with a number of hanger options such as a weld on version and a bolt on version with multiple top plate configurations that can be customized to meet the OEM trailer manufacturers’ needs. Both designs have reinforced internal gussets to improve strength.

The Spicer RF Series Air Ride Suspension’s integrated system also incorporates many of the technologies of the Spicer AdVANtage suspension, including its trailing arm design, large axle surface area,improved metallurgy, Spicer brakes, standard or long stroke brake chambers, and the optional Low Maintenance System (LMS TM ) package to eliminate wheel seal failures and bearing adjustment which further reduces maintenance requirements.
