How to make LIFT Axle on trailer with Air Ride Hendricks suspension?

Block Image

You may need to contact Hendricks for their blessing? If so here's some phone numbers,

Hendrickson Trailer Applications Div, JIM 866-743-3247

Hendrickson, Kevin Miller 704-497-4886

I found that only the end user can buy the parts? Don't understand it all but here's how I did.

Bought parts from Great Dane trailers, Contact Christia ext 1222 , 800-231-1643 have them shipped to your installer, 2 weeks backorder on parts?

You need to know parts numbers, what suspension you have, this might help.

I have the same system on a reitnouer flatbed I ordered from the factory when new. we have other trailer owners that wanted to do one to their trailer and the trailer shop said they have short air bags on the back. My trailer does have the tall air bags. they were told the short airbags won't let the axle lift high enough and will hit the ground on bumpy roads. I can't see in the pics which airbags the trailer has on the back. Best thing to contact engineers at hendrickson thats my view .

I had a Hendrickson lift axle kit put on at Ctraftsmen Trailer in St. Charles, Mo. over two years ago. It was the first one they had installed. $1,600.00 for everything including moving ASB to rear axle and re-plumbing my load scale. The kit is about 65 lbs.
