I thought it was A-Frame Suspension. Just my guess, and what I have been calling it for years.

If it jams force it...
If it breaks it needed replacing anyway!

The a-frames I thought it referenced were the shape of the pivot arms from the top of the spindle to the shocks under the pipe. When looked at from the front or rear it looks like a wide "A". That sled does have that. But hey if AWS can mean Arctic Whishbone Suspension, I supose AFS could mean Arctic Front Suspension too. As stated before, A-Frame is just a guess.

If it jams force it...
If it breaks it needed replacing anyway!

A correct guess. A-frame it is.
