What are Tapered Bearings and Why Use Them?

Tapered bearings are better than roller ball bearings at handling forces exerted on the bearing during cornering (known as axial load) in trucks and large cars. 

Roller ball bearings have spherical ball bearings between two straight rings (called races). Tapered bearings use tapered rollers shaped like flat-topped cones and two races angled from the outside to the inside of the bearing. The greater the angle, the more axial load the bearing can handle.

Your model came from the factory with tapered bearings. This type of bearing handles cornering forces better for trucks and large cars. Roller ball bearings work well for smaller cars, but replacing a tapered bearing with a roller ball bearing will result in increased wear and faster failure.

Customer Q&A
Ask a question to 1A Auto customers who purchased the product
what is the bolt size on the 3 bolt flange?
Bryon A August 29, 2016
Sorry we do not have the bolt specs avail.
Brian F August 29, 2016
Are these as good as Timken. Or at least as good as OEM?
DiggerDerrik D September 12, 2016
Yes they are I would recommend them
Alvin M September 12, 2016
They are comparable to oem, easy to install. Drive from Kentucky to New York with no issues. However, if you do a lot of off road driven Moog is best choice.
Peter D September 12, 2016
These are OE equivalent. Proper installation and axle but torque specs are critical to a long lasting part.
Brian F September 12, 2016
will these fit a 4wd?
