Air bags

Recommended Posts

I robbed the rear suspension from the Revell snap Peterbilt. It's a fairly modern design without obviously being an in-house system like a Kenworth 8 bagger. The easy way is to cut the whole rear end of the frame off and graft it onto whatever frame you're using. I did it the hard way, cutting each mounting point out of the Revell frame and then trimming the thickness of the frame out of each mounting surface so I could mount it onto a different frame.

If you’re going for a more modern air bag equipped Freightliner FLC, I wonder if you went with the chassis and/or rear suspension from the FLD 120, you’d be all set? I think the both have air bags on the rear, but if I remember correctly, the FLD has the more modern type. Of course if you want the real rubber ones, either one would work as a base for aftermarket parts.
