Dana Enhances Aftermarket Axle Carrier Program

Dana Enhances Aftermarket Axle Carrier Program

Dana has enhanced its aftermarket heavy-axle carrier program by launching a user-friendly, smart part-numbering system and the addition of a new core exchange purchase option.

“We have implemented these new initiatives to support our customers who have been asking for a simplified part identification scheme along with a process to return cores to a trusted market partner,” said Chris Boesel, senior product manager for the Dana Aftermarket.  “We will also maintain our popular approach to marketing genuine Spicer original-equipment carriers."

Intended to significantly simplify the 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 give customers 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).

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