Ridewell Suspensions Introduces FiberTech Composite Bushings

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Ridewell Suspensions, truck and trailer suspension manufacturer, has developed a new composite bushing, called FiberTech, which is the result of over a year of collaborative development with Ridewell’s European custom bushing supplier.

The FiberTech bushing offers high frictional resistance to bushing slippage after installation, according to the maker. It also requires low force to install and remove, and is durable due to a unique bushing and eye interface. The bushing has a self-preserving nature when subjected to radial overloads, and is securely retained to the eye without adhesives or clamping, says Ridewell.

The FiberTech bushing is solidly designed to offer high durability and improved suspension roll stability over  “cavity-style” bushings.  In addition, there is no need to orient the bushing upon installation as is required for cavity bushings.

Ridewell Suspension is offering FiberTech on several new suspension systems for various applications and capacities.
