Rowe equipment in Lafayette Indiana. J.P. Or Don 765-447-3900. They quoted me about $5,000 out the door and we normally see about a .5 mpg increase. They build there custom right there.

Right now I'm talking to my local international dealer about selling me and then installing a ready made Hendrickson non driving lift axle. Haven't heard any prices yet though.

As far as hendrickson ready made lift axles go I would call them direct. My local international dealer was supposed to call me back with prices And weather they even want to do it but haven't heard from them yet.

As far as the front or rear should be lifted , it's difficult to lift the rear just geometry wise. Most everyone lifts the front not the rear.
