Bearing is a technical device and a part of the strut, which supports a fixed structure with certain stiffness. It also provides rotation and fixes the position in space. By the way, the first bearing was invented back in 1829. Rolling contact supporting bearing of the strut ensures turns around at each turn of the wheels. Let us bring to a sharper focus how it happens. Rolling contact bearings consist of a pair of rings of different shapes.

On the outer surface of the inner ring and the inner surface of the outer ring there are spouts, on which in the work process bearing rolling elements move. In order to reduce the size and increase the accuracy and rigidity some components of vehicles use combined bearings. There are also rolling contact bearings made without separator (some types of bearings can be without them). Such bearings have a considerable number of rolling elements and a large capacity. However, the highest rotational rate of bearings without separator is much lower due to excessive rotation of the moments of resistance.

Rolling contact bearings operate primarily on the rolling friction. In this case there are only small losses due to friction between the separator and rolling elements. Therefore, in comparison with plain bearings energy losses for friction are reduced and this slows down wear and tear. Cartridge roller bearings have a protective cover and do not require maintenance such as grease replacement. Open bearings are quite sensitive to the ingress of foreign bodies, as they lead to fairly rapid destruction of the bearing. You have a problem with the strut and need to buy a modern bearing? We invite you to do this in our online store. We sell bearings and any other spare car parts like expansion valve, servo cylinder or flywheel at moderate price.

Faults of strut bearing
  • wear of inner or outer ring;
  • cracks on the bearing surface;
  • wear of the mounting holes or gaskets;
  • bearing corrosion.
Symptoms of strut bearing failure
  • backlash;
  • hum and rattle in the shock absorber area;
  • complexity in handling the car;
  • increase in body rolling.
Causes of strut bearing faults
  • driving on the low quality road surface;
  • aggressive driving style;
  • temperature drops;
  • installing wider low-profile tires, aerodynamic spoilers and skirts;
  • ignoring the terms and recommendations for the part operating;
  • contamination of the part.
Diagnosis of strut bearing

Diagnosis of the bearings condition is recommended every 20 thousand kilometers. There are several ways to check:

  • 1. Touch the shock absorber spring and ask your assistant at this point to turn the wheel. When bearings are worn, after these actions you will hear a metallic click and feel the return shock in the palm.
  • 2. At low speed turn and brake listening carefully. At the item malfunction you will hear background noise, and feel the backlash in the steering wheel.
  • 3. Driving on a bumpy road, you can hear the gnashing of metal in the strut area. This serves as evidence of the urgent need to replace the bearing.
Replacement of the strut bearing

We remind you that it is necessary to replace the strut bearings every 100 thousand kilometers. You can replace the part on your own. To do this:

  • lift the required side with a jack and remove the wheel;
  • if there is ABS, find wheel speed sensor and remove the wire clamp;
  • remove the brake hose clamp;
  • unscrew the anti-roll bar top pin and the steering knuckle bolts;
  • suspend or support the lower arm;
  • lift the hood and loosen the nut on the strut rod to the upper mounting;
  • unscrew the nuts with a wrench;
  • pull out the strut assembly;
  • at the same time compress the spring on both sides;
  • replace the old bearing.

At the end of the replacement procedure, carry out wheel alignment.
