Dana unit debuts Integral Arm steer axle
Sep 1, 2002 12:00 PM
Dana Corp's Commercial Vehicle Systems unit's Dana Spicer E-1462I Integral Arm steer axle is designed to replace the E-1460I 89-mm (3.5") drop standard track steer axle.
Kingpin joint improvements in the E-1462I steer axle add durability required by medium- and heavy-duty applications. The E-1462I maintains the reliability of integral forged knuckles in a lightweight and maneuverable package. A patent-pending kingpin joint includes the use of two drawkeys with spring washer retention in a more rigid beam design. A sealed thrust bearing keeps lubricants in and contaminants out.
Options include wheel bearing adjustment hardware available with either fine- or extra-fine thread, an ABS sensor wire or hydraulic hose attachment point on top of the knuckle, and stop bolt assembly for greater turn angle adjustment range. For full details, contact Dana, CVS Axle Division, 6938 Elm Valley Dr, Kalamazoo MI 49003.
