For all the scratch builders and custom builders out there...

I found my truck/trailer suspension, braking, steering, and axle repair book today, and it has some great pictures of tractor and trailer suspensions including dimensions, as well as Freuhauf and Trailmobile trailer schematics of sorts with dimensions. I tried scanning them earlier today but my scanner had a fit and screwed the images up, but tomorrow I'll rescan them.

It has a whole mess of Reyco and Hendrickson suspensions with Ford/GM specific configurations as well as Neway, Peterbilt, and other various air ride suspensions. It also has some Reyco trailer suspension setups in it.

If anyone has any requests for suspensions/trailers/steering axles/lift axles/drive axle hubs, let me know and I'll make sure to scan them!

The new Great Dane from Moebius has that Vantraax suspension, right?

any pics of the 1947 Fruehauf trailer suspension/frame? Or pics of a walking beam suspension with leaf springs that has pretty clear details of it?
