Hendrickson Puts a New Twist on End Bushings!
WOODRIDGE, Ill. - Hendrickson Truck Suspension Systems officials announce the launch of a new rotating bar pin end bushing. "We realize time is money in the service industry and that's why Hendrickson has taken customer feedback and produced the industry's first rubber rotating bar pin end bushing for our walking beams," stated David McCleave, director of aftermarket and technical services.
This new bushing design creates an opportunity for time savings as the installer will not need to pay special attention to the bar pin angle during installation. Once pressed in, the bar pin can be turned with a shop wrench or similar tool to the required axle angle.
The rotating bar pin end bushing part number is 34013-188L which includes a set of shims for easy axle alignment as well as the required fasteners to complete the installation. Product will be available through Hendrickson authorized distributors beginning in late December 2010. For more information, visit www.hendrickson-intl.com or call 630-910-2800.
