8,000 LB - LINK DURALIFT STEERABLE LIFT AXLE (8K)
New! Now available in 8K, 10K, and 13.5K capacities, we have completely redesigned our family of self-steer auxiliary suspensions. A 20K model will be unveiled later in 2018. Featuring Swift Mount Technology, Link’s self-steer auxiliary suspensions use patented interchangeable right height brackets and integrated air kits to reduce installation time by three to five hours.
ll Link lift axles are designed and manufactured with a focus on quality, durability and time savings. Link’s DuraLift® self-steer options are available in 8k, 13.5k and 20k capacities. The DuraMax line of lift axles offer capacities ranging from 13.2k to 20k. Link Lift Axles are also engineered with unique benefits that add additional value for installers and end-users. Link’s patented interchangeable ride height brackets and integrated air kit allow installers to save 2-3 hours of installation time. The bracket kits also reduce inventory requirements. And our industry-best 5-Day Lead Times and award-winning customer service enable drivers and owners to experience limited down time.
The DuraLift Self-Steer lift axles from Link come in three lightweight capacities – 8K, 13.5K and 20K – that incorporate several distinctive features. The patented, interchangeable ride height brackets allow the installer to manage inventory dollars and still offer a lift axle for nearly any truck. The improved lift spring geometry assures longer lift spring life and less downtime for the owner. A compact mounting envelope, combined with optional integrated air control system saves valuable frame rail space. The separate ride height brackets and pre-plumbed integrated air control kit can save up to 2-3 hours of installation time. Our redesigned DuraLift 13.5 Lift Axle takes convenience to a new level. The new design adds optional Fender Bracket Attachments that don’t require hub removal and optional Reverse Lock. And, by repositioning the lift bags to reduce bushing wear and utilizing industry-standard wheel end components, we’ve simplified your maintenance process and inventory requirements.
The DuraMax 20K Lift Axle, for tag or pusher positions, incorporates several patented features for easier installation, increased stability and durable performance. The patented, interchangeable ride height brackets allow the installer to manage inventory dollars and still offer a lift axle for nearly any truck. The separate brackets allow the user to easily move the lift axle to a different truck. The compact mounting envelope (24.6’’) combined with the optional integrated air control system saves valuable frame rail space. The separate ride height brackets and pre-plumbed integrated air control kit can save 2-3 hours of installation time. The DuraMax Lift Axle is also available in 13K or 17K capacity. The unique design allows 11’’ to 15’’ of ride height and 15’’ of travel, making it outstanding for tag position applications encountering uneven terrain. The direct arm to axle connection increases stability and reduces maintenance. The DuraMax is completely unitized at the factory, insuring accurate alignment of the suspension. It is available with 15’’ or 20’’ wheels for maximum lift and clearance.
