Meritor’s lightweight trailer suspension

Meritor’s MTA-Tec6 Lightweight Trailer Suspension is engineered for capacities up to 23,000 pounds for tankers, flatbeds and other demanding vocational applications. Both the standard fully-dressed top and low mounts are designed for weight savings. The suspension is built with the company’s 6-inch-diameter MTec6 axle designed for weight savings and increased stiffness to deliver better tire-to-road contact. The plug-and-play design is interchangeable with other trailing-arm air-ride suspensions and fits within the narrow hanger footprint of current trailer configurations to facilitate easy installation. The company’s proprietary bolt-on cam bushing design allows for camshaft service without removing the hub.
