DuraLift II unit lighter, yet just as strong
Aug 1, 2005 12:00 PM
Link Mfg Ltd's new DuraLift II is a 13,200-lb-capacity, self-steer liftable suspension constructed of steel and cast aluminum components. DuraLift II has one of the smallest installation envelopes in the industry and uses the patented interchangeable and adjustable frame brackets found on the DuraLift suspension.
The new lift actuators employ a more compact and lightweight rolling sleeve design in conjunction with zero wind-up bushings and cast aluminum lift arms. These actuators operate in-line (parallel), opposed to current angular designs, increasing reliability and durability of the lift system, as well as providing increased driveline clearance. This design also allows an integrated air kit to be installed inside the suspension system and maintain the same compact installation envelope.
DuraLift II is more than 10% lighter than the current DuraLift, using strong, lightweight components in non-critical load-bearing areas, including cast aluminum lift arms and actuator components, a high-strength aluminum crossmember, and a tubular steel axle with cast steel ends.
Bushings are easy to replace and do not require a press for replacement. The lift springs can be replaced with standard hand tools — no special tools required. DuraLift II uses steel hangers.
It also offers an optional factory-installed, integrated air system. This pre-plumbed unit significantly reduces installation time.
Three ride height bracket kits mount to the single base model, allowing the DuraLift and DuraLift II to fit any ride height and any frame width while keeping dealer inventory requirements low. Trailer mounts are available for 15" to 19.5" ride heights.
