Today, Meritor parts are sold under two major categories: genuine and standard aftermarket:
Meritor offers genuine replacement parts designed to match the quality and performance of the original. These parts are identical to the OEM components that are installed on trucks in the assembly line. Each part is also continuously updated with the latest design and engineering enhancements. If you are looking for proven and reliable performance, genuine Meritor parts are a perfect choice. These are also especially recommended for new vehicles as the parts will not void the warranty.
Meritor aftermarket parts are engineered to exacting specifications to ensure performance and value for original, second, and even third owners. At its core, each part meets all OEM performance expectations but is engineered to provide more in quality, performance, and value. Some of the top-selling aftermarket parts sold by Meritor include:
Meritor Axles - Truck axles have made Meritor what it is today, so it’s no surprise that it is the world’s biggest independent manufacturer of heavy duty truck axles. Its extensive portfolio includes front and non-drive axles, single, tandem, and tridem axles, and specialty axle systems for linehaul, off-highway, mining, construction, and other vehicle applications. Meritor axles are designed to achieve up to 98 percent efficiency and power density that, combined with robust, lightweight construction, deliver superior performance and durability across multiple applications. The axles are also available in a wide selection of gear selections, ranging from OEMs to superfast ratios and axle configurations that offer customization options and flexibility. Their extended oil change intervals also cut down maintenance costs and downtime as well as minimize their environmental impact.
Meritor Carriers - Meritor carriers are compatible with axles with a gross axle weight of 3-18 tons and a gross combination weight of 9-100 tons. Each carrier is fabricated in-house and matched according to the requirements of its final measures to ensure optimum performance and long maintenance intervals. Precision-forged gearing also provides superior power density, up to 98 percent efficiency, and exceptional strength and durability. For main long-haul carriers, Meritor also uses advanced laser welding techniques to join the axle’s drive gears with the differential, resulting in a high torque rating, reduced oil splash, and durability increase up to 30 percent.
Meritor Brakes - One of the world’s leading brake suppliers, Meritor offers braking systems and individual components for trucks, trailers, buses, and coaches. Meritor brakes are designed to be light in weight and heavy on stopping power that’s backed with over a million miles of field testing. These parts also have advanced features, such as special drum brake anchor pins that eliminate “shoe float” and double sealing technology that provides superior water and debris protection. Also, Meritor brakes have fewer parts than their competitors, making them easier to maintain and have a longer service life. Here are some of the best-sellers under this product line:
