The FAG SmartSET from Schaeffler. A ready-to-fit wheel bearing repair solution for trucks and trailers.

The FAG SmartSET has been developed exclusively for the aftermarket to meet the needs of the modern commercial vehicle workshop. Every SmartSET is pre-assembled, pre-greased and pre-positioned at the factory and includes special fitting tools which simplify installation, reducing the chances of fitting errors.

There is a comprehensive range available to suit all popular types of truck and trailer axle, with oil or grease lubrication. The Duratect®B coating and dust cover also help to deliver a service lifetime of up to twice that of a conventional tapered roller bearing!

When durability matters
– make the right choice!

When seals become contaminated, vehicle performance and reliability is quickly compromised.

Lorries are expected to operate around the clock while exposed to moisture and general physical debris and still produce as little down time as possible. Operating conditions are harsh, but reliability remains vital for the driver and the customer.
Corteco Cassette seals provide the perfect solution and form part of a new generation of ‘closed sealing’ solutions that protects against contamination in working conditions and tough operating environments.
Corteco has a comprehensive seal range that now includes almost every sealing option, from traditional gaskets and O-rings to the latest low-friction Cassettes for CV and LCV. Cassette sealing system technology is now used in a wide number of applications and available for a broad range of different sizes.


Borg & Beck’s CV Steering & Suspension range includes Drag Links, Tie Rods, Torque Rods, Stabiliser Links, V-Stays and associated Tie Rod Ends, which cover all popular applications.

The full programme is manufactured to exacting OE specification and includes an E-Coating applicable for the majority of the range, to ensure excellent corrosion resistance of up to 10 years!

Comprehensive range of over 490 references
  covering all popular applications
• E-coated to prevent against corrosion
