Technology: Lytx adds new capabilities to Vision Platform
Dana Inc. has expanded its Spicer Select all-makes drivetrain portfolio to include additional u-joints for commercial-vehicle applications as well as new u-joint strap kits. With the addition of the strap kits, the Spicer Select offering provides a complete u-joint replacement package for a significant portion of over-the-road and vocational applications.
“The expansion of the Spicer Select portfolio allows aftermarket distributors to better address the needs of customers with aging vehicles by offering replacement parts designed specifically for them,” said Mark Wallace, president of Dana Commercial Driveline Technologies and Aftermarket. “When installing a new u-joint, Dana recommends replacing the supporting hardware to ensure safety and maximum durability. The addition of the strap kits for the Spicer Select product line enables distributors to offer a complete replacement kit for customers.”
Available through traditional aftermarket channels, Spicer Select offers a practical replacement alternative for aging vehicles, Dana says, adding that the comprehensive development and manufacturing process ensures that products provide proper fit, function, and reliable performance, and are backed by Dana’s warranty..
Dana’s Spicer Select u-joint and strap kit replacement offerings cover the following driveshaft series:
- Spicer 1710/1760 Series;
- Spicer 1810 Series; and
- Spicer 1610 Series (u-joints only).
Spicer Select strap kits are also available for Spicer SPL170 and SPL250 driveshafts.
Additionally, Dana says that it will announce Spicer Select for light-vehicle applications with the launch of u-joints, center bearings, and yokes beginning in early 2019.
