AxleTech International is adding to its aftermarket product line with new OE-quality on-highway brake kits. The company says this product is a direct replacement for the most common on-highway brake shoes, including most Meritor and Eaton styles.
AxleTech says it is committed to expanding its presence in the on-highway aftermarket, and the new brake shoe kits diversify AxleTech’s drivetrain components offering for the industry, which includes carriers, bearings, and dryer cartridges.
“Our brake shoe kits consist of new shoes, not remanufactured, which provide longer friction and drum life. Also, our brake shoe kits feature a robust e-coating that helps protect against rust jacking, heat treated anchors and roller ends for better performance and quieter braking, and through-welded tables for a solid foundation and improved braking performance,” says Mark Goedtel, product manager – Brakes, at AxleTech International.
The brake shoe kits, packaged in a single box, include complete components and hardware required to efficiently install brakes on on-highway trucks. AxleTech says the brake linings are manufactured by the largest OE supplier of friction materials in North America.
AxleTech brake shoe kits are readily available in Economy, Standard, Premium, and Severe Duty formulations, in both 20K and 23K Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR).
