Automotive bearings comprise a variety of bearing types for different applications in motor vehicles. These applications include steering systems, seats, transmissions, axles, engine management, wipers, struts, pedals, levers, and more. A wide variety of bearings can be produced specifically for automotive use, such as tapered roller bearings, thrust bearings, ball bearings, needle roller bearings
, spherical and cylindrical roller bearings
, and angular contact bearings
. Each type of bearing has a specialized application within a vehicle, and is specifically designed for high performance and longevity. For example, bearings for hybrid and electrical engines comprise electrically isolated bearings with extremely low friction joints, ceramic rolling elements, and long lasting greases. Wheel bearings are designed with a focus on internal geometry, sealing, and high performance grease. Similarly, gearbox bearings often feature innovative designs to provide optimal space conservation, filter elements and thermal treatments, and high energy efficiency. MRO Supply offers a wide range of engine and gearbox bearings, as well as clutch release bearings, suspension strut bearings, composite bearings, and constant-velocity joints.
