Torsion Axles & Brakes

UFP Trailer Buddy Torsion Axle Suspension

Trailer buddy torsion axles aren't your average torsion axle. The advancement of these axles over "standard" torsion axles is significant. Trailer Buddy torsion axles come standard with removable trailing arms. This means that replacing the spindle can be accomplished without torching off the axle and causing potential frame damage. If you ever were to damage a spindle or blow out your hub bearings, you won't have to replace the entire axle, only the "end unit" or trailing arm. This arm attaches to the main axle beam by a tooth and groove or spline system. Because of this, the trailing arms can be adjusted for up to 6 degrees for incremental ride height adjustments. The main axle beam integrates into your trailer's frame for added structural integrity.

Other exclusive features for these axles:
  • The combination of inner and outer alignment bushings holds superior wheel camber and toe-in
  • The rubber elements provide independent wheel suspension resulting in a smoother ride
  • Rubber is self-dampening which minimizes the trailer hop often experienced with leaf springs
  • Elimination of metal to metal contact means a quieter ride and no maintenance of spring linkages

 

 

Note: Special order torsion axles take approximately 1-2 weeks for delivery. Galvanized axle can take up to 3 weeks.
