Part Details

  • Bearing Type:   Tapered Roller Bearing
  • Quantity:   6 Piece Set
  • Kit Includes:
      (2) Front CV Axles
      (2) Front Outer Tie Rods
      (2) Front Wheel Bearing & Hub Assemblies

What are Tapered Bearings and Why Use Them?  Tapered bearings use rollers shaped like flat-topped cones and two races angled from the outside in of the bearing.  This angle makes the bearing better at handling forces exerted on the bearing during cornering (known as axial load) in trucks and large cars.  Your model came from the factory with tapered bearings. Roller ball bearings work well for smaller cars, but replacing a tapered bearing with a roller ball bearing increases wear and failure.

Note: When replacing steering components, it is recommended to have a professional alignment performed afterwards.  This ensures proper tracking and even tire wear.

Our steering and suspension components are pre-greased and sealed for long life and do not require the extra maintenance typically required by greaseable versions.

No modifications, all the parts needed in one kit
Direct fit - easy install, pre-greased, no maintenance required
Improved ride comfort and longer life
