Troy, Michigan – AxleTech International is expanding its popular on-highway brake shoe kits product line with Reduced Stopping Distance (RSD)-certified brake linings. 

Latest stopping distance federal regulations mandate panic stop performance improvements for on-highway trucks.

AxleTech provides on-highway brake shoe kits in Economy, Standard, Premium, and Severe Duty formulations, in both 20K and 23K Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR). The kits include brand new brake shoes and OE-quality hardware for ease of installation.
