The streamlined design eliminates components to significantly lower weight, while improving durability and reducing maintenance. The new design creates the industry's first solid connection of the cast trailing arm beams to the transverse beam. This solid, permanent connection eliminates fasteners and bushings; no bushings removes the need to re-torque. The solid connection also provides a linear roll rate with characteristics that not only improve handling and steering characteristics, but also enhance driver comfort and confidence—all critical considerations for high center of gravity applications such as front and rear discharge mixers.
As compared to traditional torque rod and track bar arrangements that transmit forces to the center of the crossmember, the ADZ's V-Rod Upper Control Arm directs lateral forces toward the crossmember and frame rail junctions. This new high strength V-Rod design results in improved bushing life, uniform roll rate and allows for a lighter weight crossmember.
Other ADZ features include: EZ-Align Non-Welded axle re-alignment, weld-on axle adapters, and multifunctional pivot bushings for improved ride comfort and handling. As a result, the lighter weight ADZ provides increased load capacity and reduced fuel consumption for improved operational efficiency. — www.safholland.com
