All Makes Parts
If you are new to the commercial truck industry you may have heard the term "All Makes" in reference to parts or service, but not quite understood its meaning. Unlike the automotive industry, there are a large proportion of parts and accessories that are common and used across most popular North American brands, particularly in heavy duty Class 8 trucks.
For example you may have a certain model of Mack, Volvo, Freightliner, International, Kenworth, Peterbilt, Western Star as well as others; and every one of them could have the same wheel seals or wheel bearings. These parts that fit "All Makes" can be sourced from any dealer representing any of the brands and are usually sold under the same "base" part number.
All Makes parts are quite common in wheel end parts, braking systems, some suspension parts like airbags and shocks, drivetrain components including transmissions, clutches and drivelines, steer and drive axles, lighting and safety systems and many more.
