Kenworth — AirGlide 100


Kenworth — AirGlide 100

Description

This was the first in Kenworth’s Airglide series. It features sway bars, torque rods and eight air bags. There are four torque rods– two transverse, two radial track rods. The radial rods (running the length of the vehicle) can be either 24" (TR59-41375) for 52" axle spread or 25" (TR59-41150) for 54" axle spread. The two transverse rods are both TR59-41376.

The OE rubber sway bar wrap bushing does not have tabs, but when the bushing is compressed in the housing, the rubber bulges out effectively forming side tabs. ATRO pre-molds those side tabs into its PL1008; the PL1184 is molded without tabs. The ends of the sway bar are bushed with ATRO’s freely rotating TS38000.
