Link Manufacturing has strong relationships with every OEM of on-highway vehicles and their suppliers. Since 1980, Cabmate® has been the premier cab suspension of choice for the Class 7-8 truck market. Our ROI Cabmate promises to take that to the next level, responding instantly to road conditions to provide an even smoother ride for the driver with better handling and control, while protecting electronics and equipment within the cab. With just a glance, our Cat’s Eye® tire pressure monitoring system makes it easy to see if your dual tires are under-inflated, while equalizing pressure between the duals and reducing the chance of a blowout. And our fuel saving 6x2 auxiliary suspension features superior traction and lower maintenance cost. Our family of lift axle suspensions install quickly, require minimal maintenance, and provide a solution to state bridge laws.
For over four decades, Link has been committed to engineering heavy-duty trucking solutions that raise the bar for performance, installation efficiency and overall driver well being. This devotion started in 1980 with one truck driver searching for a better ride. The result of his efforts was Cabmate®, a revolutionary cab air suspension system. Today, Cabmate® is the standard in premium cab suspensions, and Link supplies more OEM cab suspensions than anyone else in the world.
The future of cab suspensions begins with the ROI Cabmate. After years of research and engineering innovation, Link has developed the ROI Cabmate featuring Road Optimized Innovations (ROI) technology. ROI Cabmate is a revolutionary cab air suspension system engineered to deliver a better ride regardless of road surfaces. The intelligent system uses electronically controlled components to maximize ride comfort and stability.
Our Non-Steer lift axle is available in 13K, 17K and 20K capacities. The Non-Steer 20K Lift Axle, for tag or pusher positions, incorporates several patented features for easier installation, increased stability and durable performance. The unique design of the Model 5500 allows 11’’ to 15’’ of ride height and 15’’ of travel, making it outstanding for tag position applications encountering uneven terrain.
6x2 Lift Axle
The 6x2 non-steer lift axle is available as a factory install with Volvo and Mack. The 20K lift axle suspension puts you in the ideal position to improve fuel efficiency, traction, and tire life.
Our Easy Slider® Sliding Kingpin system allows drivers to adjust the trailer kingpin position within 8” increments on a fully loaded, connected trailer without having to disconnect the kingpin from the fifth wheel. By varying the overall length of the tractor/trailer unit, the axle weight distribution can be optimized for particular load configurations and road conditions, thereby maximizing payloads and improving traction.
With just a glance, the Cat’s Eye tire pressure monitoring system makes it easy to see if your dual tires are under-inflated. The Cat’s Eye system also ensures tire pressure is equalized between dual tires – reducing drag and the chance for a blowout. The patented design of the Cat’s Eye tire pressure monitoring system allows drivers and fleet maintenance managers to quickly and easily see if there is a potential safety hazard from underinflated tires.
