This history of tandem suspensions outlines the problems encountered by early four wheel solid tire trucks. It covers the evolution to pneumatic tires and then the addition of the third axle. It illustrates the many different types of suspensions developed as well as the corresponding drive and trailer axle assemblies. It then illustrates that the economics of the dual axle concept are still current today.
