Drop axle failure

Recommended Posts

                                         The Hendrickson northwest field man showed up at our shop today and inspected the broken axles. He admitted it was metal fatigue that caused those axles to break.

                                         And those axles that broke were first generation and redesigned twice since. As far the air pressure being to high- 70 psi is not out of range for our application.

                                         As far as correct height he looked at two other trucks we have{ same model and wheel base} measured and found nothing wrong with installation. And all of our

                                         trucks have factory installed drop axles.              So That's- That.
