AxleTech International launches on-highway brake shoe kits

Troy, Michigan – AxleTech International is adding to its aftermarket product line with new OE-quality on-highway brake kits. The product is a direct replacement for the most common on-highway brake shoes, including most Meritor and Eaton styles.

The company is committed to expanding its presence in the on-highway aftermarket, and the new brake shoe kits diversify AxleTech’s drivetrain components offering for the industry, which includes carriers, bearings, and dryer cartridges.

The brake shoe kits, packaged in a single box, include complete components and hardware required to efficiently install brakes on on-highway trucks. The brake linings are manufactured by the largest OE supplier of friction materials in North America.

“Our brake shoe kits consist of new shoes, not remanufactured, which provide longer friction and drum life. Also, our brake shoe kits feature a robust e-coating that helps protect against rust jacking, heat treated anchors and roller ends for better performance and quieter braking, and through-welded tables for a solid foundation and improved braking performance,” said Mark Goedtel, Product Manager – Brakes, at AxleTech International.

AxleTech brake shoe kits are readily available in Economy, Standard, Premium, and Severe Duty formulations, in both 20K and 23K Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR).
