Economical alternative to more costly ceramic hybrid bearings. Available for M96 engines originally equipped with single- and dual-row intermediate shaft bearing.
The RND RS Roller IMS Bearing Replacement sports a 2-year/24,000 miles limited parts warranty with professional installation, proper IMS procedure pre-qualification, and qualifying bearing registration. The RND RS Roller IMS Bearing Replacement has a recommended service interval 4 years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first.
The only IMS roller bearing retrofit kit with true thrust control.
Cylindrical bearings provide great lateral load capacity, sacrificing their maximum load cap in thrust (axial movement). That’s why precise thrust control is crucial for bearing’s longevity and reliability. RND Roller Bearing IMS Retrofit kit is the only solution on the market that uses proper heat treated, 52100 bearing steel thrust surfaces supporting radial and axial loads internally
