What are center bearings?

Automotive center bearings are components found in driveshafts, which are part of the drivetrain system in a vehicle. They are designed to provide support and stability to the driveshaft, which transmits power from the engine to the wheels. The center bearing helps reduce vibrations and noise from the driveshaft, and allows for smooth and efficient operation of the drivetrain.

MTC Parts supplies a wide range of center bearings for a wide range of vehicle applications.

In most vehicles, the center bearing is located in the middle of the driveshaft and is mounted on a bracket or hanger. The center bearing typically consists of a metal housing that encases a rotating shaft, along with bearings and seals to allow for smooth rotation and protect against contaminants.

Center bearings can wear out over time due to exposure to high temperatures, vibration, and exposure to moisture, leading to bearing failure and drivetrain problems. Regular maintenance and inspection of the center bearing is important to ensure the smooth operation of the drivetrain and prevent costly repairs.
