MAUMEE, Ohio — Dana Holding Corp. has introduced two new Spicer high-performance third member drop out axle housings for Ford 9-inch applications. The new Spicer third members are available in either nodular iron, delivering the strength and durability required for off-road conditions, or premium-grade aluminum, for weight savings in circle track, street rod, and other racing applications.

Both new Spicer third members come with a built-in fill plug for easy maintenance, and billet adjuster nuts for increased durability and strength.  They also come standard with an anti-stick, reusable gasket that is Teflon-coated for clean release and a woven steel core for durability.

The new Spicer third members are available with either a carrier bearing bore of 3.250 inches for  35/40 splines, or a bore of 3.062 inches for 28/31 splines.
