Ted, when M-B introduced single leaf front springs on the Actros, they were actually introducing Hendrickson product. Hendrickson produces the most of the steel spring suspension for European truckmakers. Hendrickson continually developed better and better metallurgy, reaching the point where they can offer a durable and lightweight single leaf design. That said, if I was running the outback, I'd go with a 3-leaf design.

I know the folks at Hendrickson. Their ongoing research in metallurgy is impressive.

our CH 1998 Mack Has Air bag suspension on the tandem drive  (HAS 460?) POS

all OK in a straight line

it spins up a wheel go n round roundabouts

cant go over a roadside kerb with out losing traction

useless off road ............. not enuff vertical travel

not good for placing a full load on / off the drive by crane etc it bends the air bag top plate

had it all overhauld by the xperts @ $10k

no more airbags on truck drives 4 me

Giving serious consideration to letting these Guys have a Play with It..

have heard the Wodonga mob R good

they fit bigger plumbin to cure the problems

They do a Bit more that That Mate.

Like most clever Ideas it's; very simple what they do.. (They even have a Worldwide patent on It)

 

They connect the Air bags together via Large Air lines & install a valve that isolates the Air bags once the Height control Valve is Level.

Then (for instances) if you're reversing up a kerb when the rear Axle starts to rise air is transferred to the Front Air bags making It a true load sharing Deal Similar to a Walking Beam. 

As apposed to normally when the rear axle starts to rise Triggering the height control valve to Dump Air & Whilst your waiting for this reaction to happen your front axle loses traction because It's swinging in the Breeze being Lifted by the rear axle..
