“We are seeing a significant increase in acceptance of air disc brakes in North America, and the redesign of our existing front steer axle with the universal knuckle will accommodate either brake type globally,” said Ken Hogan, general manager of North America axles.

Meritor’s universal knuckle front steer axle has one service part instead of the previous two knuckles on each axle. Service parts are no longer dependent on brake types and simplifies inventory needed.

The new component offers customers higher payload capacity, which increases productivity and eliminates the need for a heavier and more expensive 13,200 lb. axle.
