Link Manufacturing introduces self-steer auxiliary suspensions with enhanced 20K model

Link Mfg., Ltd. announced it will unveil details of its 20K self-steer suspension in booth 2019 at this year’s NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, Indiana.


Link Mfg., Ltd. has announced a new 20K self-steer suspension. The enhanced 20K axle incorporates technological and component upgrades already available in the company’s lighter-capacity suspensions.

Link’s 8K, 10K, 13.5K and 20K self-steer auxiliary suspensions features Swift Mount technology, allowing installation to be completed in as little as two hours. Link’s Swift Mount interchangeable ride height brackets incorporate improvements in the way the frame brackets attach to the suspension hanger. The brackets can be used to mount any Link suspension, and by maintaining four sets in inventory, installers can be prepared for nearly any installation.

Link’s Swift Mount design uses a unique stepped-edge on the frame bracket, offering installers a visual indicator to help center the suspension on the truck.

Rear air spring brackets are compatible with wide flange frame rails, accomplished by having the air fittings oriented to the outside. The air fittings can also be repositioned to the inside if desired. For ease of service later, the air springs can be removed and replaced without needing to remove the bracket from the truck. An optional bulkhead air control system is also available, fitting within each axle’s compact mounting envelope. All air fittings are push-to-connect, and air tanks are designed to mount slightly above cross members, protecting them in cases where the suspension bottoms out.

All Link self-steer auxiliary suspensions are equipped with cast lift arms and Link-KOAT migratory self-healing metal treatment. Link-KOAT provides corrosion resistance and rust protection, even when surfaces are exposed to excessive abrasion, harsh chemicals and other severe-duty environmental factors.
