Shock Absorber Bushings and Bearings

Shock Absorber Bushings and Strut Bearings

Vehicle performance and driving comfort are directly impacted by the shock absorbers. The components that make struts perform at optimal levels must provide a strong steel backing with sintered PTFE.

CCTY’s shock absorber bushing and bearing products have:

  • Long service life
  • Superior wear resistance
  • Reduced weight and compact design
  • PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) for self-lubricating features and friction reduction

Rod Ends

Rod ends are similar to spherical plain bearings (SPBs). While SPBs provide misalignment of oscillating movement in a fixed environment, rod ends can be mounted to the shock absorber as a linkage.

Spherical Plain Bearings

Radial spherical plain bearings are available with different sliding contact surface combinations, where the sliding surfaces of inner and outer rings are made from different materials. 

PTFE Bushing

Composite bushings feature a hardened steel backing with an inner lining of PTFE. Cylindrical, flanged and thrust bushings forms are available. TLA material is formulated specifically for linear applications such as shock absorber bushings.
