Cardone Expands Front and Rear Drive Axle Line
Cardone Industries Inc. is expanding its drive axle assembly Article line for light to medium trucks and passenger cars.
The company says it is responding to customer feedback and has identified common failure points in order to re-engineer front and rear drive axles that save technicians time and cut cost.
“Typically, someone would need an expert to rebuild a full axle assembly piece-by-piece or they’d hunt for a suitable part in a junk yard. Our team designed these Articles to be end-to-end solutions,” says Joe Camacho, innovation Article manager.
Camacho adds that full drive axle rebuilds can be costly, because they often take six to eight hours. Cardone’s axle assemblies significantly reduce the cost and time required for a technician to install.
“These drive axle assemblies come ready to install and cut time down to about an hour and a half,” says Camacho. “We aimed to make the sourcing and installation of these drive axle assemblies simple and straightforward. We also offer brand-new U-Bolt Kits, complete with all nuts and washers needed to complete the job.”
In addition, Cardone is offering free delivery on core exchanges. Technicians can order their axle assembly, then Cardone will send the new part in a reusable crate that the technician can refill with their core part and ship back to Cardone. Cardone pays for the shipping and takes the value of the core off the total cost.
Each axle assembly is designed using only original equipment (OE) internal Articles. Once the engineering team completes a Article, the axle assembly is 100% tested for vibration and excessive noise concerns in the gears and bearing.
