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.

Positive Mold Technology

Improves durability and performance by allowing for even wear. Eliminates brake fade and glazing, generates less brake dust, and promotes a longer-lasting , better performing brake pad.

OE Grade Multi-Layer Shim

Reduces noise and vibration

Environmentally Compliant

Meets the Better Brake Law standards

Thermal Scorched

Accelerates the break-in process and enhances stopping performance from the first stop.

100% CNC-Machined to Exact OE Specs

Balanced to reduce vibration.

Cast from OE Grade Alloy

Manufactured from OE Grade G3000 Casting Alloy.

Non-Directional Surface Finish

Helps ensure smoother, quieter, and more effective braking.

Precision Engineered

From the highest grade SAE 1055 / 65Mn high carbon steel to exact OEM design.
100% Factory tested to precise OEM tolerances.

Highest Quality Materials

High quality, multi-lip seal reduces the intrusion of dirt and water. Heavy duty grease resists high temperature, moisture, and reduces intense friction.

Direct Fit Replacement

Guaranteed to fit and function correctly for your specific application.
