Brake Compatibility

Compatible with all brake systems offered by Freightliner Trucks, Western Star, Thomas Built Buses and FCCC.

Ground Clearance

Ground Clearance

Model 2 features increased ground clearance due to smaller bowl to help avoid obstacles.

Precision-machined Gears

Precision-machined Gears

Precision-machined gears optimize the power flow and reduce noise.

Larger Differential

Our engineers eliminated the head bearing and integrated the differential case and ring gear in the differential housing. As a result they gained additional room to increase the size of the main differential, providing better stability in tight or dangerous situations, and longer-lasting durability.

Precision Machined Gears

The ring and pinion gears are machined using highly advanced power-dry cutting and grinding that result in exacting tooth profiles and ideal gear mesh—so precise, in fact, that the ring and pinion gears do not require pairing. These sophisticated processes render perfectly matched gearing to ensure more efficient power transmission, longer durability, quiet axle operation and enhanced driver comfort.

More Uptime

A pinion and carrier flange that completely seals the axle from the dirt and grime on the road means less maintenance, more road time and lower overall costs throughout the life of the axle.

Optional Equipment

  • Driver Controlled Differential Lock (DCDL)
  • NoSpin - for automatic differential locking
  • Driveline-mounted parking brake for hydraulic brake applications
