Product Highlights

Rubber cushion pivots in the bracket, allowing +/-5

Reduced risk of premature bearing wear due to misalignment

Provides a common mounting platform on the crossmember or mounting bracket. No shimming or bracket changes are necessary to achieve desired alignment

Genuine OE replacement product

Unique design protects the bearing against contamination without the use of external deflectors

Backward compatibility with previous Meritor or current competitive designs

Meritor self-aligning center bearings should not be replaced with traditional, non-self-aligning center bearings due to possible angularity issues.

General Product Information

  1. Improved balance specification reduces noise and vibration.
  2. Reduced risk of premature bearing wear due to misalignment.
  3. Common mounting platform on the crossmember or mounting bracket. No shimming or bracket changes are necessary to achieve desired alignment.
  4. Unique design protects the bearings from contamination without the use of external deflectors.
  5. Backward compatible with previous Meritor or current competitive designs.
  6. Slotted mounting holes provide more compliance for assembly by allowing for truck build tolerances.
  7. Patented Meritor design allows for three directions of bracket misalignment. For a comparison of the Meritor self-aligning center bearing vs. the competition, see the diagram below.
  8. +/- 5° of vertical angularity, +/- 4° degrees of horizontal angularity and +/- 1/4” fore and aft allowed, thanks to rubber cushion pivots in the bracket.
