F.K. Bearings came onto the scene quietly over 30 years ago. They did not make a huge splash, but quickly won the customers over with fair pricing, and plenty of inventory. While the industrial market struggled to get product from the old stand-bys, the racing market embraced a supplier that would maintain inventory throughout the limited season. Recently, to further assure timely delivery, F.K. Bearing set up two regional warehouses. Filled to the brim with inventory, these warehouses can offer localized service for emergency orders.
Over the years the F.K. Bearings product line has grown to encompass many different industries. From the wilds of Baja Mexico, to the "good old boys" of NASCAR....from mowers to care for your lawn, to fitness equipment to groom your body, you'll find F.K. Rod Ends! In your hands is our latest offering in an evolving program designed to supply rod end products to users everywhere! You will find rod ends and spherical bearings made from mild steel, chromemoly/alloy steel, aluminum, and stainless. Special care is taken during every step of the manufacturing process to insure you the highest quality products.
With almost 10,000 combinations of rod ends and spherical bearings available, you will appreciate the effort goes into filling each order. Within our state-of-the-art facility, we carefully craft our products, so we are able to say, "Yes, it's in stock" when you call.
F.K. Bearings offers self-lubricating PTFE liners on nearly all of our rod ends and spherical bearings. The PTFE liner is chemically bonded to the inner diameter of the race. The liner offers a very high load carrying capacity and has greatly increased dynamic wear characteristics. The operating temperatures of our liner range from -65º to 325º F.
