Reyco Granning has introduced the ComfortMaster line of independent front suspensions (IFS). The first two platform variants will be based on 17,000-lb. GAWR and 20,000-lb. GAWR systems, and will be available for shipment in November. The company says that additional capacities are in development and new configurations will follow.
According to Reyco Granning, the new line of suspensions is a direct replacement for the popular IFS17S3, IFS18S3, and IFS20S3 product families.
The system includes sub-frame/cradle, power steering gear, steering linkage, and all components to make it a unitized bolt-in system. Reyco Granning touts ComfortMaster’s nitrogen charged and sealed McPherson-style strut architecture. The nitrogen strut integrates the functions of spring, shock absorber, king-pin and upper control arm into one component, which the company says makes the system lightweight and efficient.
“The tidy packaging of the strut affords the highest possible wheel-cut angle allowed by today’s tire manufacturers—a true 60-degree vehicle maneuverability is simply unprecedented,” said John Stuart, president of Reyco Granning.
