Navistar has introduced International-branded brake drums manufactured to the same standards as Navistar OE specs. In fact, these are the same drums that will be used for factory production on many of the company’s truck models later in the year.

Made to SAE and ASTM standards, these drums are said to be subjected to stringent quality audits. Many models feature "machined-to-balance" engineering, resulting in weight savings of 2-4 lb per drum, says Navistar. They’re also claimed to show improved heat dissipation when compared to traditional designs, which should deliver both improved cost per mile and a longer life expectancy through a better heat transfer process and anti-corrosion protection. 

The drums are available through International/IC truck and bus dealerships and offer a one-year/unlimited-mileage warranty.
