Kenworth is making Dana Spicer D-series lightweight steer axles for use with air disc brakes available on its T680 and T880 model trucks with gross axle weight ratings from 10,000 10 13,200 pounds.  The D-series axle features a new lightweight beam with a robust axle-to-brake attachment to help maximize performance.  A patented steer arm design further reduces weight, delivering excellent performance within a smaller design envelope.  The axles also feature a new integrated air disc brake knuckle.  The knuckle’s one-piece, forged design incorporates the tie-rod arm, disc brake mounting feature and spindle, and eliminates the need for a separate torque plate and its associated fasteners.  The new axle weighs approximately 35 pounds less than the previous lightweight beam axle and torque plate assembly.
