The Stability You Need. The Ride You Want.

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 combination ensures proper weight distribution and minimizes individual axle overload scenarios.

The 40K SWB Suspension is specifically designed to make use of the reliability of Link’s steer axle specific walking beams, while simplifying the connection to the frame. The spring mounts are readily available spring pins which simplifies maintenance and replacement. The straightforward simplicity in the design makes it easy to maintain by operators and fleet mechanics.

Overall, drivers will appreciate the improved ride that the SWB offers. The spring over walking beam design isolates the chassis from road forces as well as less wear and tear on the vehicle.


  • End pins on the SWB Suspension

    Locked In Wheel Alignment

    Proprietary end pin design allows five points of adjustment and locks in wheel alignment to help simplify maintenance and extend service life.

  • Walking beams on the SWB tandem steer suspension

    Ensure Even Load Distribution

    The walking beam design evenly distributes the load between the steer axles through the entire range of articulation.

  • The grease points on a SWB tandem steer suspension

    Reduce Maintenance

    The SWB has only two grease points (compared to 10 on a conventional 4 spring suspension) therefore reducing maintenance time and effort.

  • The polyurethane bushings on an SWB Tandem steer suspension


    Heavy duty bushings at main suspension connections provide a longer service life and no lubrication.

  • The ride shocks on a SWB Tandem Steer Suspension

    Heavy Duty Shock Absorbers

    Select shock absorbers are tuned for the optimal ride characteristics, enhance driver comfort, and are protected for durability.

    Lightweight Suspension Design

    The straightforward design of the SWB weighs approximately 1755 lbs. This translates into a weight reduction of 10%-20% from a typical OEM four-spring suspension applications.
