Volvo steer axles are specifically designed for the demands of heavy-duty applications, with better control, easier handling, and less maintenance. The 16,500-lb. to 20,000-lb. capacity axles are the perfect choice for heavy-duty king pin with a tapered design. The Volvo axle provides improved handling, control and stability, as well as enhanced bearing clearance. The smooth, firm ride is maintained even in tight wheel cuts. A newly designed steering arm allows up to a 40-degree wheel cut with wide-based tires.
