Dana Corp. recently celebrated the production of its one-millionth Spicer E-12021 steer axle at its Humboldt, TN, plant.

The Spicer E-12021 features a one-piece integral arm forged knuckle for reduced weight; a large kingpin diameter for improved durability and reduced maintenance; two draw-key kingpin retention screws for improved alignment capability and reduced maintenance; and a power rib beam for improved alignment capability.

The one-millionth axle was built as a complete assembly with a Paccar-proprietary front suspension, Bendix air disc brakes and Spicer LMS aluminum hubs for use on a Kenworth T660 longhaul conventional. www.dana.com
