Dana Diamond Series aluminum driveshaft

Truck Parts | January 25, 2012

Dana’s Diamond Series aluminum driveshaft joins Spicer steel U-joints to a new one-piece aluminum shaft, offering a driveshaft that is as strong as conventional designs, yet weighs up to 40 percent less, the company says.

Aimed at heavy-duty commercial trucks using two-piece steel driveshafts of 7.5 feet, the one-piece design – without the center bearing and one universal joint – reduces component wear, the company says. High-strength aluminum offers corrosion resistance. The driveshafts will be available late in the fourth quarter.
