Dana improves heavy-axle carrier program

Dana Holding Corporation has enhanced its genuine heavy-axle carrier program for the aftermarket with the launch of a new user-friendly, smart part-numbering system and the addition of a new core exchange purchase option.

Intended to significantly simplify ordering and delivery of Spicer service carriers, the new part numbering system better reflects industry standards and allows customers to easily identify axle locations, model numbers, ratios, gross axle weight ratings, and other carrier options.

The core exchange program was added to provide an additional purchase choice for new Spicer carriers. Both the Spicer core-exchange carriers and the Spicer core-free carriers consist of genuine, brand new carriers (not used or reman).

Enhancements include both medium- and heavy-duty carriers. A two-year, unlimited-miles warranty will remain in effect, with the option of a three-year, unlimited-miles warranty recently added with the use of the new Spicer FE 75W-90 axle lubricant.

With these changes, the Dana Aftermarket has also created a new website——for easy cross-referencing of old part numbers with new part numbers and for checking local availability. The page includes additional product information and updates.

All of Dana’s Spicer carrier gearing components are manufactured with special grade steel, heat-treated and shot-peened to optimize hardness and performance, and precision-machined to help ensure consistency across all axle sets.

Distribution and logistics sites for genuine Spicer carriers are in 20 locations throughout the United States and Canada with same-day service available in certain areas.
