Ridewell Suspensions introduces a new 8,000-lb-capacity version of its Flex-Trac, a self-steering, liftable auxiliary axle suspension system. The 8K Flex-Trac is suitable for when a bit more capacity is needed or when configuring a multiple axle truck to take maximum advantage of weight laws.

The 8K Flex-Trac has all the features of the original Flex-Trac and weighs 690 pounds. Features include:

  • A compact mounting envelope as low as 21.7" from the center of the spindle to the leading edge of the hanger.

  • A one-size-fits-all system that easily adjusts to various frame widths and ride heights with no additional brackets required.

  • 10" of up travel that can easily be optimized for various ride heights and 13½" of total travel.

  • Urethane bushings for long life.

  • High tensile steel construction.

  • 28 degrees of wheel cut.
