Let’s talk suspensions—specifically, how suspensions are being affected by greenhouse gas regulations.

With another round of GHG regulations coming in 2020, it’s a good idea to look ahead and see how various truck components will be affected. Obviously, engines are the most directly affected component, but suspensions aren’t far behind. The designs of suspensions made in the last few years are have been changing in order to accommodate fleets’ continued desire to cut their trucks’ weight.

But while reducing weight is important, fleets still need to maintain a certain level of performance from their suspensions. Cutting weight won’t be worthwhile if the truck ends up with durability problems down the road. It’s all about striking a balance—spec’ing lighter suspensions, but also making sure to retain the performance.
