New Seal Installation Tool Kit Announced
Dana’s new Spicer® seal installation tool kit provides precise tools to ensure the
job is done right the first time, every time. The all-inclusive kit features an
extensive collection of color-coded tools, an easy-to-understand tool selection

common Spicer® axle models.
Full Array of Aftermarket Products on Display
The Dana exhibit (located at booth 605) at HDAW, which runs Jan. 22-25 in Las
Vegas, also features genuine Spicer Life Series® and Spicer 10 Series™ u-joints.
“Spicer is a trusted name for commercial vehicle parts in the heavy-duty
aftermarket,” said Dan Griffin, senior director of sales, engineering, finance, and
human resources for the Dana Aftermarket. “Recent competitive testing for
fatigue has proven that Spicer u-joints outperform the competition and are the
optimal choice for our customers.”
Fatigue test results showed that Spicer 10 Series u-joints were five times more
durable than the closest competitor on like products. Spicer 10 Series u-joints
are manufactured using statistically controlled processes to ensure consistently
high quality, durability, and performance. The Spicer 10 Series u-joints feature
enhanced journal cross material and zerks positioned on both sides for ease of
lubrication and increased life span.
Test results also showed that Spicer Life Series u-joints last more than two times
longer than the closest competitor on like product. Spicer Life Series u-joints are
OEM-engineered to deliver better lubrication, a premium sealing package, and
superior u-joint design that extends bearing life by 30 percent compared with
competitive products. Spicer Life Series u-joints have upgraded lubrication
options, seal guard, premium Viton® multi-lip sealing package, thrust washers,
bearing cups, and journal cross equipment for optimal performance and
recently enhanced e-catalog and e-commerce platform at DanaAftermarket.com.
