Hendrickson Shocks

Shocks help limit the upward and downward travel of air suspension. Hendrickson determines shocks with specific strokes, seal designs, bore diameters, and dampening characteristics which enhance the ride and handling performance and minimizes the stress absorbed by the frame and other suspension components. Shocks also protect components such as air springs and height control valve by limiting compressed and extended stroke. Hendrickson original equipment shocks, protect your equipment, improve tire wear, fuel mileage, ride, handling, and performance. Ensure optimum suspension performance by replacing with original equipment shocks.

General Product Information

The Hendrickson Story

The Hendrickson story began in 1913 with the founding of The Hendrickson Motor Truck Company by inventor and businessman Magnus Hendrickson. This small Chicago-based manufacturing company built trucks often equipped with cranes, which were used to haul stone and other building materials.

In 1926, Hendrickson introduced the first tandem truck suspension, which mounted the axles on each end of an equalizing beam. This unique "walking beam" design distributed the truck's load evenly between the two rear axles, which improved traction and greatly reduced the effects of bumps and potholes in the road. The walking beam soon gained widespread acceptance among the industry's new 6x4 "six wheeler" trucks, which allowed more payload.

In 1978, The Boler Company, whose holdings included manufacturers of leaf springs and metal bumpers, purchased Hendrickson. In the years that followed, Hendrickson would expand into or acquire additional businesses in related areas—trailer suspension systems, auxiliary axle systems, springs, metal bumpers, and other heavy-duty components.

Eventually Hendrickson sold the truck manufacturing operation to focus solely on suspension systems and related components.

Today, Hendrickson is comprised of state-of-the-art facilities, technical centers and manufacturing centers, in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, France, Austria, Romania, Turkey, India, China and Australia.

At Hendrickson, we commit to serving the transportation industry with innovative products that help improve productivity and profitability. Across the globe, our dedicated employees champion Hendrickson’s proud heritage through creativity, integrity and superior service.
