"Dana is committed to providing a wide range of driveline replacement options to our channel partners so they can offer the right solutions to their customers," said Dan Griffin, senior director, global aftermarket sales, marketing, and customer service for Dana.  "The SPL 250 Lite addresses the needs of vehicle operators that choose to replace with genuine product while our growing Spicer Select portfolio offers Dana-engineered all-makes alternatives for aging vehicles."

SPL 250 Lite Driveshaft Offers Original-Equipment Quality Replacement Option

The new SPL 250 Lite aftermarket replacement offering simplifies installation with a press-in midship assembly and includes the complete driveshaft, coupling shaft, and service components. It does not require torque wrenches or boot clamps for ease of service.

Designed to handle torque ratings up to 25,000 Nm, the SPL 250 Lite driveshaft is up to 25 pounds lighter than competitive products.  It shares service components with the SPL 350 and SPL 250 driveshafts, further simplifying inventory for aftermarket outlets and service facilities.

SPL 250 Lite assemblies are built on order, while service parts are offered through the company's Crossville, Tennessee, distribution center.  For part numbers, ordering, and availability, visit DanaAftermarket.com.

Spicer Select Expansion Extends Competitive Reach

Dana continues to expand the Spicer Select product range with the addition of two new replacement u-joints covering Meritor Permalube RPL Series drivelines.  Spicer Select u-joints are permanently lubricated and sealed, providing reduced operating and maintenance costs.

Griffin added, "Spicer Select provides an all-makes option with the quality and performance the market has come to expect from Dana.  Expanding our offerings to include these additional u-joints reflects our ongoing effort to deliver a broad portfolio that meets a diverse set of vehicle lifecycle requirements."

Spicer Select drivetrain products are Dana-engineered and -tested aftermarket products manufactured by a network of carefully selected partners.  The comprehensive development and manufacturing process ensures that products provide proper fit, function, and reliable performance.  For program information, visit SpicerParts.com/SpicerSelect.  For part numbers, ordering, and availability, visit DanaAftermarket.com
