A large amount of force is needed between the rotating shaft and the part that supports the rotation. Bearings perform the function of preventing damage from being done by this force to the part that supports the rotation, and also of maintaining the correct position of the rotating shaft.
The two varieties of thrust bearing most commonly used in automotive applications are the ball and roller types. Ball bearings consist of a number of balls held within two circular rails and can handle a comparatively lower amount of thrust. Tapered roller bearings are similar in appearance, but the cylindrical roller bearings provide more surface area and can handle significantly higher levels of thrust. Both of these types of thrust bearing are commonly used within wheel hubs. Bearings are required for the wheels to rotate while supporting the weight of the vehicle, and the presence of a thrust bearing is necessary because of the inherent axial stresses.
