A lot goes into making your rig drive smooth and achieve maximum efficiency, but while larger components such as the engine and transmission get a lot of attention, smaller components such as the pinion bearing race are left in the dust. In fact, most people don't even know that they exist. Yet, pinion bearings are essential in the movement of your rig and are what help ensure that every move your Jeep makes is deliberate and precise. If you notice that your fuel mileage is down or that your movements are jerky and sporadic, it may be time to replace those old, worn-down pinion bearings with all new ones. Shop our pinion bearing kits for all the parts you need to make the swap at an affordable price.
The Role of the Pinion Bearing
Pinion bearings may be small but they play a huge role in the overall functionality of your Jeep. These little circular bolts ensure that your wheels and other components only move in one direction—the direction you instruct it to move—and prevent any unnecessary and undesired movement. This is great for both your fuel economy and your vehicle performance. Though tiny, they control the numerous gears and cogs of your differential and allow one wheel to safely rotate faster than the other when making turns. If your pinion bearings start to wear, your axles will be put under a lot of stress due to one wheel rotating faster than the other. Don't allow any component to be put under unnecessary strain and replace the worn bearing with a replacement one.
