Thanks for the input!
I have really been chasing my tail trying to deciede what air ride to buy. I might should have just left the Kelderman system on the F650! It did work!
I have a lot of information in front of me to consider.
I have talked twice with Silent drive, and they say 4-6 weeks for a suspension......that is an indication to me the ALD330 isn't selling well, as they would have to build one they say. I was hopefull that they would be a little better than you found them to be in the "service after the sale". But at least they didn't not help at all.
I feel also that the ALD330 is too heavy for my application, which will never see more than 12,000 pounds on the rear axle. I discussed the ride concern with them, and was assured it would be great! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] The price is good @ $1775.00, in their favor.
Then, there is Reyco/Granning and Hendrickson, who don't seem to want to return my calls I've made all week. [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img]
But I guess when your the biggest, you don't need to sell one lousy suspension! [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]
Finally there is Fleetco, with a system I have installed on customers trucks with satisfactory results, but is at the very high end on price. At about $3800 with frieght, it is expensive. But, the customer service is good, and very accessible. I have had one truck that had a vibration at 45 mph with this system, but it was on a F550, and it was replaced at fletco's cost, under warrenty.
I may go the Fleetco route, I just haven't qiute decieded.If your not familar with Fleetco, here is a link; www.fleetcoproducts.com
Money is a factor, unforunatley!
Thanks again for the input on Silent Drive, I appreciate your time..
