The proven performance, durability and ease of service make the Easy Steer axle perfect for virtually any fleet. In weight ratings from 6,000 to 20,000 lbs., these premium axles are compatible with a wide range of popular Meritor brake products, and are supported by more than 3,500 genuine parts outlets nationwide, with distribution centers strategically located to reduce down-time.

Meritor’s front non-drive steer axles were also optimized to meet the FMVSS 121 reduced stopping distance regulation. By upgrading the knuckle to accept a larger 3/4 inch fastener for the brake mounting attachment, the axle gains additional clamp retention needed to withstand the new torque forces generated by the RSD Brakes.
