DLS – the conventional leaf spring system.

The DLS – the conventional leaf spring system – is the optimal chassis solution for 10.5 t axle loads. It is suitable for on and off highway usage and is compatible with most 22.5", 19.5" applications with 19.5" brakes. Heat management is optimised through the intelligent arrangement of the conventional leaf spring system the wheel hub and brake disc. The brake disc is made out of a wear-resistant iron alloy (a Mercedes-Benz patent) and all wearing parts are structurally identical to Mercedes-Benz truck axles. This makes maintenance easier, increases safety and lowers lifecycle costs.
