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.
