Frequently Asked Questions

The Trifecta Pre-Adjusted Hub Assembly combines STEMCO’s high performance Discover XR seal, the revolutionary Zip-Torq axle fastener, precision bearings, a spacer optimized for lubricant flow, and for steer axle applications, the Defender ESP hubcap is also included.

Pre-adjusted hubs eliminate the need for bearing adjustment. The precision manufactured bearings, spacer, and hub provide a fixed dimensional distance between the inner and outer bearings eliminating the need to manually adjust the bearings. A torque wrench must be used to set the axle fastener according to the pre-adjusted hub manufacturers recommended torque setting, with no backing off the nut.

Trifecta is currently available for the most popular truck and trailer applications. FF Steer, FL Steer, R Drive, P Trailer and N Trailer with iron hubs and drum brake configurations make up the available offerings at this time. Please contact your STEMCO sales representative or STEMCO technical support for assistance with cross reference.
