How is a Modern Suspension Caster similar to a Ford F-150?

Both are constructed in ALUMINUM.

Did you know?
• Aluminum is the most abundant, naturally occurring metal in the earth’s crust?• You are likely never more than six feet away from a piece of aluminum• Without aluminum, many of the conveniences of today’s world would not exist (like the LCD monitor you are probably reading this article on)

Aluminum is a premier material, the choice for something being built to last and to function flawlessly in a variety of conditions. Aluminum is a unique metal in that it is corrosion resistant, can be formed at cold temperatures, has about 1/3rd the density of steel, is highly reflective, and is non magnetic.

However, like other metals, aluminum is strong and durable, an excellent thermal and electrical conductor.
Aluminum’s low density and high strength make it a great choice for a variety of different application including the body of America’s top selling pickup truck, the Ford F-150.

Ford Motor Company chose aluminum because it offers several benefits over steel, including:

• Lighter Weight and better fuel efficiency

• Improved power-to-weight ratio

• Better Handling, more nimble
