Center bearing supports or prop shaft bearing supports are a key drive-line NVH dampening component. They assist in mounting the two sections of a driveshaft or prop shaft to the correct position and allow axial deflection as the drive is engaged and during breaking.
They also isolate noise and vibration by allowing the drive shaft to ‘flex’ - taking much of the stress on critical drive-line components.
As they are directly related to driveshafts, they are found in rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive vehicles, such as the pickups which Thailand is famous for.
You will know when your center bearing support has failed as your vehicle will shake when you accelerate, and you will hear uncommon noises as you come to a stop.
You should always take immediate action to replace your center bearing support at a skilled service center.
Failing center bearings lead to premature wear of other critical drive-line components and very expensive repair costs.
As with all our parts, Mchanix uses high quality materials such as virgin natural rubber and high quality graded bearings to manufacture premium quality center bearing supports that isolate NVH, to support great driving comfort and vehicle safety.
