I have copied and sent just about every image on here to my parts guy. Parts salesman is totally dumbfounded. No one has ever seen anything like this suspension. I have a 1985 KW K100E. On the build sheet, comes up as a hendrickson. Must be a Frankenstein. Being I know it's not a hendrickson. So the cab must have been placed on an older chassis suspension with SQHD axles. Does anyone have any information? Maybe someone that has one with a serial number on their build sheet. All I have to go by is that it is a KW Air Leaf Suspension.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. 🦕

I have the exact KW Air ride suspension. But I can't find a serial number on it. I'm trying to replace the bushings. Does anyone know the serial number on these suspensions or the part number for the bushings? Your help would be greatly appreciated

I looked and dont see any cracks on them, will see if there is some hiding under the paint though, hope not. It would be great if you could scan them John W.

Justin,

I have the manual that shows it.....when I get time I'll scan the section.

 I'm a little surprised to see your frame brackets are still the original type....all four of ours have been broke and replaced with the later style.

Im thinking they will go on the outside, Much easyer to make up something for the outside thne it is to move cross members. Thanks for that info though. Do you have a bigger photo or extra copy of that 1966 brochure? would be kinda neat to have that to show the people that ask what it is. I have already had one guy say he has never seen or heard of that early air ride when we stoped at the truck museum in Brooks on the way back.

Justin,

As long as the spacing is right on the end of youre arms so that shocks run true up and down without rubbing the rails it shouldnt matter if you mount them outboard.They might actually work better that way anyway.John
