Tech Tip: Generation 1 Wheel Bearings With Integrated ABS Tone Ring

The front wheel bearings listed in this Tech Tip all share a unique design feature. They are all double-row angular contact with a split inner ring. The distinctive feature on these bearings is that one of the two seals on the bearing has a built-in magnetic impulse wheel. Caution should be taken to make sure that the seal with the ABS impulse ring is installed in the correct direction.

The front wheel bearings listed above all share a unique design feature. They are all double-row angular contact with a split inner ring. The distinctive feature on these bearings is that one of the two seals on the bearing has a built-in magnetic impulse wheel. Caution should be taken to make sure that the seal with the ABS impulse ring is installed in the correct direction. The side with the impulse ring needs to be installed closest to the ABS sensor. If it is installed backwards, the ABS system will not function.
The side with the ABS ring can be identified either by placing a lightweight metallic object (such as a paper clip) to the magnetic side or by a close visual inspection. The close visual inspection will reveal the ABS impulse ring windows, which can be seen through the seal surface. Care should be used when handling and installing the bearing so that the impulse ring is not damaged. If this occurs, the ABS system will not function correctly.

Look at the “big picture” and really consider how the vehicle will operate if things aren’t done correctly.

This month, I had an opportunity to ride along in a brand-new F150 Lightning Platinum. This thing was loaded to the gills – power everything, massaging front seats, blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, the works! We were driving down the interstate with the truck in “self-driving mode” and it was really something to experience. The truck was using a number of ADAS sensors to monitor the vehicles around it, the curvature of the road, and everything in between. It tracked straight and kept us in the center of the lane, even as the road curved back and forth.
