Automotive Bearings offers a wide range of CX® wheel bearings for most car makes and models. The good quality of these products ensures their long and safe use which is extremely important as the correct operation of bearings has a fundamental importance for the drive comfort and safety.
The traditional solution for the wheel hub bearing is to use two tapered bearings installed back-to-back. A big advantage of this solution is that it allows for the replacement of a damaged bearing at a minimum cost. Of course, it requires a lot of accuracy during assembly, as tapered bearings are sensitive to assembly errors. Newer designs use double row angular contact ball bearings. This saves space, also in the axial direction, in comparison to two tapered bearings, which is very important for designers. In addition, the use of double row angular contact ball bearings facilitates the assembly, and the sealed bearing is lubricated for life.
