Our front-steer axles equip your truck with the support and maneuverability your business needs to facilitate success.More Specs
We offer a 12,500-lb front axle rating for multiple applications. This provides an additional 500 lbs capacity on the front axle, compared to a 12,000-lb. axle, and lets you avoid purchasing a heavier, more costly 13,000-lb. axle. You get a weight- and cost-efficient solution that fits your truck application and its payload requirements. The unique I-beam design coupled with tie rod arms and axle cups enables a sharper wheel cut of up to 55 degrees, giving you the tightest turning radius available.
