King pin kits
Suitable for: trucks, trailers and buses
Polyoxymethylene (POM)-coated plain bearing bushings are characterised by their excellent frictional properties and require low-maintenance.
The composite plain bearing bushings consist of a rolled tin-steel-back with a sintered tin-bronze layer and a firmly anchored coat of POM. For optimal absorption of grease, lubricating pockets are integrated into the covering layer.
Plastic plain bearing bushings are created by an injection moulding process and are produced to very tight tolerances. The good thermal properties and the addition of fillers during production ensure maintenance-free dry operation.
In some cases, needle bearings are used instead of plain bearing bushings. They are characterised by high load capacity, in spite of small space requirements.
In addition to king pin kits, DT® Spare Parts also offers further spare parts for the front axle, such as wheel hubs, wheel bearings and repair kits.
