Kingpin seals

The main benefit of SKF kingpin seals is the elimination of the frequent lubrication of the steering axle kingpin.

A further advantage is the possible use of sensors for modern steering systems, which should not remain inside the grease that is typically applied.

The solution is a combination of a special kingpin seal and an angular contact spherical plain bearing.


  • Variety of lip designs – double lip, cassette seal with spring-loaded lip
  • Sleeve with rubber seal and spacer ring for assembly
  • Specially formulated lip with PTFE coated surface
  • Special assembly features for different customer and service requirements

  • Superior grease retention for the life of the bearing
  • Easy assembly and disassembly in service
  • Excellent contamination exclusion
