SOFTEK NXT

Remember This

Integrated monoleaf suspension and steer axle system

Hendrickson’s SOFTEK® NXT system combines the STEERTEK NXT axle and monoleaf spring technology with an advanced integrated clamp group design. This complete system saves up to 118 pounds compared to a traditional two-leaf spring and I-beam axle system.

The SOFTEK NXT system is designed for heavy-duty truck applications rated from 12,000 to 12,500 pound capacities. The advanced design captures characteristics of the traditional mechanical suspension while reducing weight to help increase fuel economy and payload capacity.
