Meritor — RHP/MPA


Meritor — RHP/MPA

Description

These trailer suspensions have a parallelogram design with parallel upper and lower control arms. Both upper and lower control arms are bolted to a central V-shaped frame bracket instead of having two separate trailing arms. The air springs mount directly over the axles for a smoother ride, elimination of roll torque and to prevent dock walk. The upper control arms are held together by a torque tube designed to control lateral roll. Approved applications include pup trailers, dry van and refrigerated van.


 Tech Tips and Additional Resources

Identification:

  • RHP, manufactured through 2007, has solid face on frame bracket. MPA (Ride Sentry), produced 2007/2008 through current has open triangle on central frame bracket face.

ATRO’s long-life bushing replacements:

ATRO’s upper control arm bushings offer chemical resistance to environmental factors and easier installation compared to a bonded rubber bushing. ATRO’s 1- and 2-piece designs both allow controlled motion of the upper control arm without causing bushing windup because the poly bushings are not bonded to the inner sleeves. In the lower torque rods, this free-rotation design eliminates bushing windup along with shear and torsional stresses from the torque rods.
