Bosch Automotive Service Solutions has introduced OTC bushing adapter kits for Hendrickson front and rear suspensions in heavy-duty applications.
The new bushing adapter kits aid in the removal and installation of front and rear bushings on select Hendrickson suspensions. The company says the adapter kits work with OTC Master Bushing Sets to provide a custom, exact fit with suspension pieces. Custom adapters align the tool properly to reduce the chance of bushing damage and ease removal/replacement.
The OTC 4250 Front Suspension Bushing Adapter Kit and 4254 Rear Suspension Bushing Adapter Kit are now available for select Hendrickson suspensions. Descriptions of each kit follow.
4250 Front Suspension Bushing Adapter Kit
Aids in the removal and installation process for select Hendrickson front suspensions, including PACCAR Monoleaf, Navistar Monoleaf and Volvo Monoleaf D-pin pivot bushings.
The OTC Front Suspension Bushing Adapter works with the 4246 or 4247 suspension bushing kits to replace rusted and frozen heavy-duty bushings faster and easier. The adapters eliminate the need to purchase a separate tool to service these front suspension systems, enabling the OTC Hendrickson rear suspension bushing tool to work on both front and rear suspension bushings
4254 Rear Suspension Bushing Adapter Kit
Assists with the removal and installation process for select Hendrickson rear suspension bushings, including PRIMAAX EX, COMFORT AIR, FCCC V RideTM Pivot and D-Pin bushings.
The OTC Rear Suspension Bushing Adapter works with the 4274 or 4275 to replace rusted and frozen heavy-duty bushings faster and easier. The 4254 adapter kit turns the 4274 or 4275 front suspension tool into a rear suspension bushing tool with custom plates and adapters for a full suspension service kit for select Hendrickson front and rear bushings.
The company says the adapter kits include a custom plate, designed to provide an exact fit with suspension pieces, and custom adapters to align the tool properly and reduce the chance of damage to the bushings. The adapter kits are used with existing OTC Hendrickson Bushing Sets. OTC’s Hendrickson suspension bushing tools feature a proprietary, patent-pending design that mounts directly to the vehicle suspension to reduce fatigue and make bushing service easier.
The 4250 Front Suspension Bushing Adapter Kit and 4254 Rear Suspension Bushing Adapter Kit are both now available through OTC’s distribution partners.
