Dana expands line of Spicer ReadyPack kits

Spicer ReadyPack preassembled kits from Dana

Dana Incorporated has added new part numbers to its line of Spicer ReadyPack preassembled kits for commercial vehicle driveshafts, coupling shafts, and interaxle shafts.

Dana says the new SKUs, combined with the original 13 SKUs, now provide driveshaft builders a kit solution for all commercial-vehicle drivelines.

“Spicer ReadyPack kits were very well received by Dana customers when first introduced, so we are pleased to announce that we have tripled our offerings, now providing full kit coverage for Dana drivelines,” says Bill Nunnery, senior director, sales and marketing, global aftermarket for Dana. “The Spicer ReadyPack line now includes service-free, SPL Lite coupling shaft, and new Spicer and SPL series options.  These time-saving kits offer convenience and streamlined ordering, as well as savings on inventory and labor costs.”

With Spicer ReadyPack preassembled kits, Dana states there is no longer a need to individually identify and order each part when reconstructing a commercial-vehicle shaft.  Featuring 100% genuine Spicer components, Spicer ReadyPack kits arrive with u-joints that are professionally installed in the yoke shaft for the slip joint and in the tube yoke for the tight joint, the company says.

Kits featuring premium Spicer Life Series (SPL) u-joints come pre-greased with production lube and sealed with the multi-lip seal, while 10 Series u-joints must be greased before use, the company adds.

"At Dana, we strive to enhance the customer experience,” Nunnery says. “Because Spicer ReadyPack kits include everything needed for a complete rebuild, including OE-quality and ready-to-install parts, Dana customers will find they can save up to 30 minutes per job. They will also benefit financially from having less inventory on-hand and will see significant savings compared to purchasing the kit components individually.”
