Alliance Truck Parts expanded its brake line to include a new Alliance 16.5” x 5” Reduced Stopping Distance (RSD) steer axle brake drum for vehicles up to and including 14,700lb gross axle weight rating.The new Alliance RSD drums are cast and machined in the U.S. for a durable and superior brake surface that prevents “shoe slap” and vibration, the company says. They are FMVSS 121- compliant and meet or exceed current OE and SAE standards.
“We’re proud of this new Alliance RSD brake drum offering, which is the perfect option for newer truck models,” says Wayne Turner, aftermarket product marketing manager for Daimler Trucks North America. “Many customers and dealers have requested an Alliance RSD option that is made in the United States. This addition to our brake drum line will provide our customers a durable, American-made brake drum at a great price.”
Alliance brake drums are backed by a 1-year/unlimited-mile, nationwide warranty serviceable at more than 800 locations, including Freightliner, Sterling, Western Star and Thomas Built Buses dealerships in the U.S. and Canada, and Travel Centers of America and Petro locations nationwide.
