Dana Spicer LMS Package Made Standard by Kenworth

Kenworth Truck Co has made Dana Spicer's Low Maintenance System (LMS) bearing and seal package standard on the front steering axle for all new Kenworth Class 8 and T300 medium-duty conventional models.

The LMS hub package includes Timken half-tolerance bearings, a precision bearing spacer, and Dana Spicer Outrunner oil seals. ConMet aluminum hubs offer close-tolerance machining for bearing seats, helping to ensure precise spacing of the bearings.

Benefits include expected longer bearing life, longer seal life, and better bearing control. Wheel-end maintenance is reduced, since bearings do not need adjustment for three years or 350,000 miles, unless disturbed. Aluminum alloy hubs offer a 22-lb weight savings. The LMS bearing and seal package carries a three-year, 350,000-mile warranty.
