Female Plain Spherical Rod Ends

Available77 products
Female plain spherical rod ends have a plain bearing in the eye-shaped head of the rod and a tapped shank. Also referred to as Heim joints and rod-end bearings, they provide a fixed point of contact between two components to allow rotational movement and to compensate for angular misalignment. The tapped internal thread of the rod's shank mounts to a male threaded rod or stud to connect parts such as a piston cylinder to a shaft. These rod ends are often used in suspension and steering systems.

Corrosion-Resistant Spherical Rod Ends

Corrosion-Resistant Spherical Rod Ends
The stainless steel housing for these female spherical rod ends is resistant to corrosion. The PTFE-lined race provides a sliding surface for the bearing that reduces wear and requires no lubrication. These female spherical rod ends are for use in applications that are exposed to contaminants such as marine environments and food processing facilities.
