What are Front and Rear Axle Differential Covers?

A differential cover, also known as a front and rear axle differential cover, isn't present in all vehicles. It's typically found in vehicles equipped with four-wheel drive (4WD) or all-wheel drive (AWD) systems to manage the rotational differences between the wheels.

Pros and Cons of Buying a Performance Differential Cover (1)_11zon

Superior Heat Dissipation

 

onsider your differential as a temperature regulator; it needs to maintain an appropriate temperature to function smoothly. SPELAB's aluminum alloy differential cover is an efficient radiator, releasing internal heat faster than the factory iron covers. Testing shows that aluminum alloy conducts heat 3-4 times better than iron, keeping your differential in a more stable, cooler operating condition, thus extending its lifespan.

Durability against Corrosion

Differential covers can withstand corrosion from external factors. According to experimental data, aluminum alloy is more corrosion-resistant than iron OE and less susceptible to oxidation, corrosion, and other environmental factors. This implies that your differential cover will be more durable and maintain good condition for extended periods.

Exquisite Appearance

Appearance matters. SPELAB's aluminum alloy differential cover not only boasts strong functionality but also has a finely crafted appearance. Due to the excellent processing performance of aluminum alloy, the manufactured differential cover is more textured and aesthetically pleasing, adding a unique sense of style to your vehicle.

Protective Coating

The aluminum alloy surface undergoes meticulous paint spraying, forming a sturdy protective layer akin to putting on an indestructible armor for the differential cover. This makes the differential cover more durable and corrosion-resistant and gives it a more luxurious appearance.

Craftsmanship Diversity

SPELAB differential covers offer two manufacturing process options: billet aluminum and cast aluminum. Cast aluminum is relatively cheaper, while billet aluminum offers better texture. Just like choosing products of different grades while shopping, cast aluminum is more affordable, but if you're after higher quality, billet aluminum is the better choice.
