Made from Alcoa® 6061-T6, an aircraft-grade aluminum that is stronger and lighter than OE.
The carrier bearing is one of the weakest links and highest maintenance costs associated with the two-piece driveline. Optimize trucks running upgraded transmissions and converters with a one-piece driveshaft made from Sonnax aluminum yokes and tubing.
Meet the toughest demands of today’s heavy-duty Dodge and Chevrolet diesel pickup trucks with Sonnax 5" performance aluminum weld yokes and tubing. Delivering enhanced strength and durability, improved torque yields, and precision-machined quality, these components pair perfectly to replace troublesome two-piece driveshafts and eliminate the high-maintenance carrier bearing altogether.
Tubing features a .125" thick wall for torque yields of up to 7,303 ft-lbs. – dramatic improvement compared to the weaker OE .083" or .065" thick tubing.
We exclusively use Sonnax aluminum weld yokes and tubes. They’re high quality, easy to assemble and work well with our welding methods to create the quality finished product our customers are looking for.B. Crownover
