A UNIVERSAL joint must be able to deliver brute power and high torque from a big diesel engine or a large displacement gasoline engine into a rear axle in order to drive a fully loaded truck Sydney to Perth, or Adelaide to Darwin.

All that horsepower and torque won't help deliver your payload if the universal joints fail.

Remember, downtime regardless of truck, payload or destination, is extremely costly to trucking fleets, and independent truck operators.

Universal joints work full-time every kilometre driven and are an important part of the entire drive train.

Only Meritor universal joints offer the below features and benefits you should consider when choosing driveline components for your vehicles:

Nylon Thrust Washer - Eliminates metal to metal contact, reducing wear and extending life.

Seal (Advanced nitrite, triple-lip system) - Meritor MXL series have superior sealing characteristics with triple-lip seal and protective metal deflector. This keeps lubrication in, and contaminants out, reducing wear and extending life.

Bearings (38 Superior Long Bearings Package) - Larger contact surface (20% more than other competitors) and a robust bearing retention system provide superior clamping force and eliminate spinning cups.

Extended Lube Intervals - Meritor MXL series lube interval is three times longer than other competitors.

These Meritor universal joint components have been linking transmissions and drive axles for trouble-free driving for decades and continue to innovate with 100-plus years of driveline technology development experience.

As a world leader in providing aftermarket solutions for the global heavy commercial vehicle markets, Meritor is committed to providing its customers with innovative aftermarket ideas that deliver the results you need to get the job done faster, better and more efficiently.
