Over 30 years of continuous development of GKN Driveline
products, GKN Motorsport plunging CV joints offer significant weight reduction,
cooler running temperatures and enhanced joint life and performance. Plunging
joints are most often used as the inboard joint (transmission side) on FWD
vehicles and on the inboard and outboard of RWD and AWD applications with
GKN is the world's leading supplier of automotive driveline
components and systems. This enables GKN Motorsport to offer an unsurpassed
range of standard, lightened and easy motion constant velocity joints able to
cope with the most demanding applications.
Housings can be produced from forgings or from solid material
and can be designed to utilise a Löbro style bolt pattern making CV to tripod
switch simple, or alternatively a “plug in” variant
The tripod grease-PRP#(f3d0020) is optimised for tripod lubrication. It has high scuffing resistance but does not contain any solid additives (which can reduce life by jamming the needle bearings).
The GKN MotorSport ball joint grease with its ultra high load carrying capacity and optimised viscosity is suitable for all fixed and plunging CV joints.
Advantages of greases especially developed for use with GKN CV and tripod joints:
- help reduce power losses
- increase durability
- offering low friction and wear properties
- wide thermal operating range
The correct type and size of boot is a vital part of the driveline assembly. GKN MotorSport boots are maximised for performance and durability. Please contact our MotorSport team for more information on boots for fixed joints and boots utilising other
