Premium Standard Cab Suspensions

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. It began with one truck driver searching for a better ride. The result was Cabmate.

Today, Link® supplies more OEM cab suspensions than anyone else in the world…more than two million to date. And, Link’s Advanced Technology Center (ATC) allows our engineers to work with our OEM partners to develop, test, validate and analyze emerging technologies to apply to future products.

Cabmate® is the leading cab air suspension system for Class 7 and 8 trucks. It replaces the solid rear cab mounts with a cushion of air using air springs, shock absorbers, air leveling valves and strategically designed brackets for controlling cab movement. Cabmate is engineered with the driver in mind. Its patented design reduces road shock and backslap, annoying vibrations, and back stress for drivers while also improving the cab environment, which enhances driver alertness and safety. The air ride produces a quieter, smoother ride and helps control cab maintenance costs.

Link has been the world leader in cab suspensions for over four decades. Since our first model was created in 1980, we have been continually perfecting the design and manufacturing processes.

Features

  • Web Cab Suspension Ride Shocks

    Tuned Shock Absorber

    Link shock absorbers are tuned for optimal ride characteristics and damper the suspension to enhance overall driver comfort.

  • Web Cab Suspension Air Bags

    Low Frequency Air Springs

    Our air springs provide a low natural frequency, which provides smoother ride qualities over rubber cab mounts.

  • Web Cab Suspension Height Control Valve

    Height Control Valve

    The height control valve automatically adds or exhausts air from the air suspension to maintain a constant static design ride height.

  • Web Cab Suspension Linkage

    Adjustable Height Control Linkage

    Some Link cab suspensions are equipped with our patented adjustable height control linkage, which allows for easy control over the amount of adjustment by rotating the barrel.

  • Web Cab Suspension Lateral Control Rod

    Manufactured Lateral Control Rod

    The lateral control rod controls lateral stiffness and cab articulation. Each lateral control rod is manufactured with rubber bushings to assist with dampening.

  • Web Cab Suspension Frame Brackets

    Engineered Frame Brackets

    Link cab suspension frame brackets are designed to reduce weight, stress, and lateral articulation on the cab.
