PORTLAND, Ore. – Aug. 20, 2014 – Western Star Truck Sales, Inc., is now offering Neway ADZ Series Heavy-Duty Drive Axle Air Suspensions by SAF-HOLLAND as an option for Western Star 4800, 4900 and 6900 truck models.

The ADZ Series suspensions feature a streamlined design that has reduced weight by more than 220 lbs per axle (compared to previous models). The new, more durable suspensions are ideal for severe-duty and heavy-duty vocational applications and the weight savings can contribute to increased payload and operating efficiencies.

New features such as an Integral Lower Control arm module, which improves roll stability for high center of gravity load vehicles, will further benefit the superior performance of every Western Star 4800, 4900 and 6900 truck model.

“Western Star trucks already are constructed with the strongest components that withstand the harshest environments, making the new ADZ Series suspensions an ideal match for our trucks,” said Ann Demitruk, director of marketing for Western Star. “Our vocational customers will appreciate this tough and stable solution.”

The ADZ Series suspensions are available in single, tandem and tridem axle configurations, ranging from 23,000 lbs to 78,000 lbs.
