DETROIT – February 3, 2015 – AAM, a leading manufacturer of axle components, driveshaft components and repair kits for OE vehicles, has announced the availability of its TracRite® GT helical gear designed limited slip style differential case (AAM part #40099548) made for the 11.5” rear axle used in ¾- and one-ton 2003-2012 Ram and 2001-2011 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra trucks.
Each AAM differential assembly is built to OEM specs because they are the same units made for OEM production use. The TracRite GT torque bias is proportional to the throttle, providing a smooth application of torque to the wheels.
“Since this differential uses helical gears, there are no clutch plates to wear and no friction additives are needed,” explained Greg Marsh, AAM engineering manager. “The TracRite GT is compatible with ABS, traction and stability control systems.”
Marsh said the TracRite GT provides maximum torque bias without causing a shudder in the vehicle and maintains its torque bias throughout the life of the vehicle.
An AAM rebate promotion for its 8.6” gear sets for axle ratios of 3.73, 3.42 or 4.10 started on November 1, 2014 and ends March 31, 2015. Qualifying purchases made during that time period are eligible for a $20 Visa card. The AAM 8.6” gear sets are designed for a variety of GM vehicles with a 10 bolt rear axle.
