Western Star Truck Sales Inc announced two new suspension options for its truck models and configurations.

The first—a Neway 60,000-lb-capacity AD 260 Tandem air suspension system—is available for all Western Star truck models using Dana D60-190 axles, and contributes to the vehicles’ road-holding and handling and positive axle alignment, virtually eliminating tire hop and enhancing traction. The Neway system also provides predictable roll stiffness for high center of gravity loads—particularly important for front and rear discharge mixers.

The 40,000-lb TufTrac All Wheel Drive (AWD) vocational suspension is also an option for the Western Star 4800 with 40,000-lb axles. Specifically designed for on- and off-road high-articulation operations where it’s important to navigate bumps, ridges, and washboard without bottoming out, the 40,000-lb TufTrac mounting is a lighter, more affordable alternative to the 46,000-lb option. Additional benefits of the 40,000-lb TufTrac include a uniform load over each wheel, maximum traction, and a smooth and quiet ride.

Both the Neway AD 260 Tandem and 40,000-pound TufTrac suspensions are available to order.
