Dana Corp.'s commercial vehicle service parts division has added eight new trailer axle assemblies to its Spicer Quick-Ship trailer axle program to better service a variety of trailer applications in the heavy-duty trucking industry. The Quick-Ship program now features 17 trailer axle assemblies, and each is guaranteed to be shipped within 48 hours after the order has been received.
Dana said its new axles include ABS-ready spiders that are made from forged steel for superior strength and lighter weight. Spiders also feature sintered, oil-impregnated bronze bushings for maximum durability, the company said.
Spicer XtraLife II S-cam brakes, with more usable brake lining than standard S-cam brakes, are available on certain models for better performance and cost savings, Dana added.
All trailer axles, including standard assemblies and drop-tube assemblies, are delivered with weld-on spiders, 28-spline S-camshafts, brake assemblies, air chamber brackets, ABS sensor brackets, and spindle nuts and washers. Four cam lengths are available, as well as three brake sizes – 12-1/4 X 7-1/2, 16-1/2 X 7, and 16-1/2 X 8-5/8 inches. Rated capacities include 20,000, 22,500 and 25,000 lbs.
