Whether fitting into the tightest spots or hauling up the steepest grades, your axles must meet the tough demands of your job.
Our front-steer, single-rear and tandem-rear axles equip you with the support and maneuverability your business needs to succeed. Their innovative needle-bearing design, precision-cut gears, and robust differentials make them a proven platform on trucks worldwide. They’re machined and assembled in the very same Detroit, Michigan facility where our legendary engines are produced.
By offering steer axle weight ratings from 6,000 to 20,000 pounds, and rear axle weight ratings from 13,000 to 46,000 pounds, Detroit axles cover every trucking segment and are easily configured for your application. You can rest assured your new axle will be compatible with the braking systems offered by all Freightliner, Western Star, Thomas Built and Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation (FCCC).
With a wheel cut up to 55 degrees, low weight for more hauling, needle bearings that roll, and an available 12,500-lb rating, Detroit front-steer axles provide the strength, performance, reliability and increased payload capacity you can count on.
Designed for higher torque applications, quieter operation and increased payload capacity, Detroit rear-drive axles are also easy to maintain, increasing your uptime and reducing your overall costs.
We made more space for a larger and stronger differential by eliminating the pinion head bearing. Our innovative oil deflector fully lubricates the power divider, extending gear life and reducing costs while our topoid offset reduces driveline vibrations and increases longevity.
Every Detroit axle provides these money-saving benefits:
- Low maintenance costs for improved cost of ownership
- Rock-solid reliability and durability to minimize downtime
Detroit axles are backed by one of the largest parts and service networks in the industry. We are committed to providing
customers with parts and service support, adding flexibility, reducing cost and increasing uptime for your business.
