Rod Ends

Rod ends – or Heim Joints – are a cousin to spherical plain bearings (SBPs). While SPBs provide misalignment of oscillating movement in a fixed environment, rod ends can be mounted to tie rods and other linkages to control varied movement. Rod end bearings are used in a wide variety of applications such as recreational vehicles, agricultural equipment, construction equipment and many other high performance machines.

CCTY Bearing Company rod ends are available in threaded and unthreaded male/female designs.
