Successful Dealer Staff July 17, 2013

Dana Holding Corporation said Tuesday the company has been named the standard and exclusive supplier of steer axles, drive axles and driveshafts on the new International TerraStar 4×4 medium-duty truck.

Navistar recently began customer deliveries of the all-wheel-drive vehicles.

The TerraStar features Dana’s new Spicer Model 273 front drive steer axle, which delivers an effective turn angle of 42 degrees, a GAWR of 8,000 lbs., and popular axle ratios.

The Spicer S110 single reduction, single rear drive axle on the TerraStar has a variety of patented and exclusive features for longer life, improved reliability, excellent durability, and quieter operation, according to Dana.

The axle has a GAWR rating of 14,000 lbs. and a maximum GCWR highway rating of 35,000 lbs.

Driveshafts are a mix of Spicer Life Series models.  SPL 55 and SPL 100 are permanently lubricated with sealed splines to reduce maintenance costs and precision balanced for reduced noise, vibration, and harshness.
