Dana Holding Corporation has enhanced its Spicer Life Series Model 250 universal joint assembly with more than a 40 percent improvement in dynamic bearing capacity
, the company says. The SPL-250 was designed to meet the needs of new low-emission, high-efficiency trucks in the Class 8 market.

"As a trusted partner for innovative technologies and unrivaled service for more than 100 years, Dana is constantly seeking ways to improve our products to meet customers' needs," said Tom DeHaven, Dana senior manager of driveshaft products.

The new SPL-250 universal joint assembly uses a new bearing package that includes larger needle bearings for increased capacity, a special Viton synthetic seal for improved grease retention and serviceability, and a thermoplastic seal guard to exclude contaminants. In addition, a new premium synthetic lubricant is meant to improve bearing life through the initial three-year/350,000-mile lubrication interval.

The assembly is also offered with the Spicer Quick Disconnect feature.
