Dodge FAQ

Why would I want lockout hubs?

This kit is so much more than simple lockout hubs.  The factory unitized bearings simply weren’t meant to take the pounding that trucks see in a commercial and consumer setting.  Whether it be snow plowing, hauling, or even a simple trip camping in the mountains.  Your drivetrain takes a beating.  Besides the fact that this kit strengthens your front axle with 35 spline shafts, this kit is also fully maintainable.

What happens when the factory unit bearings go bad?

Hopefully you are forewarned by wheel bearing noise from the fading unit bearings, then upgrade to a  SpynTec™ kit.  If not, there are great odds you will be stranded.

What are some of the benefits of the SpynTec kit?

One of the greatest benefits is reduced wear on your front drivetrain.  As it comes from the factory, your axle shafts are always spinning.  When we installed one of the prototype kits on a 2006 truck with 50k miles, the needle bearings in the u joint were completely powdered.

Another benefit from installing the SpynTec™ kit is increased fuel economy.  Depending on your driving style, we’ve recieved feedback from customers getting 2 to 2.5 more miles per gallon on average.

The wheel bearings in all SpynTec™ kits are fully rebuildable and maintainable.  If you keep up a standard service regimen, you can grease your wheel bearings are replace them as required for a fraction of the cost of new unit bearings.

I have a dually, can I use the factory wheel adapters?

Does the SpynTec kit retain ABS?

Yes, the SpynTec™ kit retains all functionality of ABS.  The reluctor ring has been gear cut into the back side of the hub and was designed from the beginning as an integral feature of the hub.  We have gone as far as having a special forging die built for our spindle to  seal the ABS reluctor ring and sensor from the elements.  The hub and spindle were designed to work together to accomplish retaining your ABS.

I have another manufacturers kit, will your components interchange?

All SpynTec™ designs were completed using components that complement each other.  Only SpynTec™ hubs and spindles will work with each other.  Our components were designed from the ground up and not simply reworked factory parts.  After all, if the factory parts were sufficient, we wouldn’t be in business and you wouldn’t be looking for something better.
