Sonnax highlights clutch backing plate for ZF transmissions

Sonnax highlights its heavy duty “D” clutch backing plate (part no. 35570-75) for ZF8HP55, ZF8HP70 and ZF8HP75 transmissions.

According to Sonnax, this plate can help prevent flexing of the clutch pack in these transmissions. The plate is twice as thick as its OEM counterpart for significantly improved protection against burn-up, Sonnax says.
