Pro Racing: Aircraft Quality, Stainless Steel Body, Teflon Liner - Used in professional caliber racing cars of all types, from F-1 to NASCAR to CART. We recommend NHBB / NMB for these applications. Not available in female configuration. NHBB Bearings
Race / Street: Chrome Moly Body, Teflon Liner - For lesser duty race applications such as Formula Ford, Sport 2000, etc, off road and street rods. For sprint cars, midgets and similar applications, we recommend the FK JMXT or JMT series (carbon steel body) where it is beneficial for the rod end to fracture instead of the suspension component.
Commercial: Carbon Steel Body - For throttle linkage, shift linkage and non - racing, lower stress applications. CM Series
