Precision Machined Gears
Detroit™ rear axle systems truly set the industry standard for longer gear life and quiet, dependable performance. The bottom-line business benefits of this truck axle are unbeatable: better performance at a lower cost.
The precision-machined ring and pinion gears ensure consistent gear mesh and optimal power flow. Tighter tolerances mean a quieter, smoother operation and allow for higher torque input.
Less Weight, More Cargo
Our single rear axle design allows for a significantly lighter axle in comparison to other axle brands. Your bonus: less weight, lower initial cost and more money for your business.
We've eliminated the need for a pinion head bearing and made more room for a larger differential for higher durability and overall axle stability.
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.
