Timoney STRIDER – Independent Front Suspension for On-Highway Trucks

Timoney developed the world’s first independent suspension for Airport Rescue Fire Fighting (ARFF) trucks in the 1970’s and in the decades since has continued to lead the evolution of Independent Suspension systems for trucks.

In 2003, Timoney expanded its Independent Suspension range to the on-highway truck market with the introduction of STRIDER. STRIDER provides independent suspension performance for truck front axles in the higher weight ratings (18-24,000 lb) that competing suspensions can’t reach.

STRIDER provides the following features:
