Dana Corp has produced its one-millionth E-series steer axle. Dana's Spicer E-1202I steer axle at its Humboldt TN manufacturing facility.

The milestone axle was built as a complete assembly with a Paccar-proprietary front suspension, along with Bendix air disc brakes and Spicer LMS aluminum hubs. The assembly was sequenced to Kenworth's facility in Renton WA for use with a new Kenworth T660 aerodynamic long-haul conventional chassis.

Originally introduced in 1993, the E-series axle has gone through numerous design enhancements.

The Spicer E-1202I steer axle features a one-piece integral arm forged knuckle for reduced weight; a large kingpin diameter for improved durability and reduced maintenance; two drawkey kingpin retention screws for improved alignment capability and reduced maintenance; and a power rib beam design for improved alignment capability.
