Hendrickson announced that its Airtek front air suspension and steer axle system, as well as the Softek suspension and steer axle package, can now be spec’d on Blue Bird’s All American Type D school buses.

The Airtek has an axle rating of 14,600 lb., while the Softek is available in capacities of 13,200 and 14, 600 lb.

Both suspension systems include the Hendrickson Steertek axle, which has a two-piece “knuckle” that allows technicians to service the kingpin without removing it from the axle beam.
