Closely tied to a vehicle’s steering performance, the suspension systems employed on many buses are under-rated right from the factory. Many bus makers purchase completely assembled chassis from the major vehicle manufacturers. Unfortunately, the designers of these chassis don’t always know the type, size or weight vehicle that will be built on them.
Since 1972, we have replaced hundreds of under-rated suspension and steering components with the finest after market solutions we can find. Customers bring their buses from as far as Arizona, New Mexico and New England to Champion Frame-Align Inc.’s facility in Elgin, IL.

Of course, even the best suspension systems can begin to show wear and tear after years of dependable service.

We can replace worn shocks with the finest gas-filled shock absorbers. Bolt-on sway bars can reduce vehicle sway and improve handling when passed by a large truck. Specially designed coil springs replace troublesome air bags, restoring vehicle ride-height—a critical factor in vehicle control—in the process.
