Axle Bearing With Locking Collar For Ford 2.835 I.D. Housing End

Sealed ball bearings and sealed double row ball bearings equipped with an O-ring don’t require an axle seal in the housing end. The outer diameter of this type axle bearing has a groove to secure the O-ring which mates with the housing end to perform a seal. The inner race of the bearing is press-fit to seal the axle shaft and the sealed axle bearing is packed with grease; making it self-lubricating. A separate axle bearing retainer plate usually holds this bearing and axle combination in the axle housing and eliminates the need for c-clip axle retention. Sealed axle bearings are also sold with integrated retainer plates for certain applications.
