Dana Incorporated has designed its Spicer driveshafts to be drop-in replacements for Mercedes-Benz and Ram Promaster Sprinter vans that eliminate technician assembly time so replacements can be completed quickly and these important last mile vehicles can get back on the road, according to the manufacturer.

“With the recent increases in last mile deliveries, plus the added demand for home deliveries, it is essential for shippers to repair their vehicles quickly with parts that outperform,” said Bill Nunnery, senior director, sales and marketing, global aftermarket for Dana Incorporated.  “To avoid downtime that exceeds the price of the repair and deal with the complexity of global vehicles, they can count on Spicer driveshafts as a maintenance-free aftermarket solution.”

Spicer driveshafts for Mercedes-Benz/RAM Sprinter vans are designed, engineered, and manufactured to meet global aftermarket driveshaft requirements and provide the top performance, reliability, and durability of original equipment (OE) products. 

Top features include:

  • Spicer Compact 2020 universal joints with a maintenance-free triple lip seal and serviceable snap ring.
  • Spicer center bearings interchangeable with OE components.
  • Dana proprietary swage tube design that provides ultra-high strength at critical speeds with clearances calibrated to OE standards for a perfect fit to the vehicle.
