LAS VEGAS, Oct. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Dana Incorporated (NYSE: DAN) has introduced a new line of Spicer® universal joints intended for severe off-road applications.  The Spicer® Extreme u-joints feature needleless bearing caps and a journal cross made of 4340 chromoly steel with an enlarged trunnion diameter for added strength.

Dana made the announcement at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show, held through Nov. 2 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.  Dana will showcase its new products in booth 35117, located in the South Hall Upper.

The Spicer Extreme u-joints include full circle snap rings, which nearly eliminate the possibility of the rings being ejected under load.  The needleless bearing caps are sealed with an internal O-ring and come with a high-grade anti-seize lubricant.  The caps also have provisions for grease fittings.

"Spicer Extreme u-joints are the ultimate solution for extreme off-road enthusiasts who push their vehicles to the edge and beyond," said Dan Griffin, senior director of global aftermarket sales, marketing, and customer service for Dana Aftermarket.  "The u-joints do not have needle bearings, reducing the potential for wear and include snap rings that are designed to nearly eliminate the possibility of ejection. These u-joints are capable of handling the toughest environments."

The 5-760X sized u-joints are designed for use with Dana 30 and Dana 44 axles, while the 1480/SPL55 sized u-joints are intended to be used with Dana 60 axles.  The increased load capacity of the Spicer Extreme u-joints makes it ideal for pairing with chromoly axle shafts with full circle snap rings.  Spicer Extreme u-joints are intended for off-road use only.
