Vocational truck suspensions from Link Manufacturing are proven to outperform for concrete mixers, dump trucks, refuse, utility, and other vocational vehicles. From our full lineup of chassis suspensions to our self-steer and non-steer auxiliary suspensions, Link is able to provide solutions where others have failed. Our Applied Technology Center (ATC) allows our engineers to test and validate our technologies to ensure they are the most reliable and durable heavy-duty vocational truck suspensions available and outperform in the most difficult environments.
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.
Available in 8K, 10K, 13.5K (drum or disc brake option), and 20K capacities, Link’s newly improved family of self-steer auxiliary suspensions enhances the performance, strength and uptime of work trucks and heavy-duty vocational vehicles.
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.
The Air Link® Tandem Drive Suspension is a unique combination of air and walking beam technology. It delivers everything you demand in a heavy-duty suspension — high roll stability, low maintenance and a smooth ride. The unique design also ensures maximum traction and load equalization. The distinctive Air Link® TD design provides superior traction when the load is full, without the bone-jarring ride when empty.
SWB Tandem Steer
The SWB (Spring Walking Beam) tandem steer suspension provides the added carrying capacity required in today’s heavy trucking industry. The suspension dynamically load equalizes through its spring over walking beam design. The innovative combination ensures proper axle tracking and weight distribution by minimizing possible overload scenarios. The 40K SWB tandem steer suspension was specifically designed to reduce axle stress, suspension weight and maintenance costs.
