Aurora Bearing Company manufactures the world’s most complete range of rod end and spherical bearings. Configurations range from 2-piece economy commercial and molded race construction through 3-piece precision designs. Aurora also produces a full line of military spec rod ends, spherical bearings, and journal bushings. Custom designed rod ends, spherical bearings, and linkages are a specialty.

Also known as "Rose joints" or "Heim Joints," the rod end bearings are a critical component of a racecar's suspension. We have carried Aurora Bearing rod ends for many years with excellent customer feedback. Heavy users such as driver schools and racecar rental shops find they get greater life out of Aurora rod ends in many applications. The majority of road race cars manufactured in the U.S. are equipped with Aurora rod ends as original equipment.
