Dana Holding Corp. on Monday, Oct. 31, announced that it plans to launch an all-new program, making genuine Dana drive and steer axles available to the entire aftermarket. These crate axles extend from spindle end to spindle end and include the full carrier, housing and gearing.
“Due to today’s growing demand for quality axles and gearing, Dana is now offering its axles to the entire aftermarket,” says Bill Gryzenia, Dana Aftermarket vice president and general manager. “Our customers require dependable and strong axles, and by fulfilling demand for the aftermarket, they’re able to enjoy the superior performance made possible by Dana products.
Designed to provide reliable and durable axles to the light-vehicle and specialty-product markets, these universal axles are suited for off-road and industrial vehicles. Dana’s new program will offer genuine Dana 30, 44, 60, 70, and 80 model axles, manufactured with Spicer components, for a variety of ratios.
“Until now, many consumers looking for Dana axles were limited to remanufactured units or those found in the salvage marketplace, where genuine Spicer components could not be guaranteed,” Gryzenia says. “We are pleased to be able to fill that void, and make these axles available to the entire aftermarket.”
