Dana Corporation will provide torque management and traction systems for Ford’s 2003 Lincoln Aviator sport-utility vehicle.

Dana will supply Spicer Life Series 22 front main driveshafts assembled at its Louisville, Kentucky, ‘customer focus centre’ for supply to Ford’s Saint Louis assembly plant.

Continuing a trend of tighter driveshaft balance specifications, Dana will balance the cardan/constant-velocity combination shafts to .20 oz. in., which the company claims results in a smoother running driveshaft and leads to a noticeable NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness) reduction.

Dana will also supply independent front axle assemblies, which offer a wide range of improvements, including a light-weight, all-aluminum carrier and tube for improved fuel efficiency, reduced size for improved vehicle packaging constraints, and added stiffness for improved NVH characteristics.

The axle assemblies will be produced at Dana’s Columbia, Missouri traction technologies axle facility.
