Dana Inc. has introduced Spicer Life Series Plus (SPL Plus) u-joints for light-vehicle applications. 

Dana Inc. has introduced Spicer Life Series Plus (SPL Plus) u-joints for light-vehicle applications.  The new line features upgraded materials and enhanced features to provide overall strength and extended product life at high operating temperatures, according to Dana.

“Exhaust systems on today’s vehicles are often placed closer to the driveline, creating more stress on driveline components due to greater temperature fluctuations,” says Bill Nunnery, senior director, sales and marketing, global aftermarket, Dana.  “We developed the new premium line of SPL Plus u-joints to provide enhanced maximum temperature capabilities, improved bearing life, and overall durability for vehicles requiring an increased heat range.”

The company describes the product this way: Among the unique features found on SPL Plus u-joints are a journal cross that is engineered with a cold-formed body to ensure better overall strength; enhanced spacer material, including a thrust washer that eliminates friction, end galling, and metal-to-metal contact; and the bearing cap is case-hardened and precision-ground for added strength and durability.
