About Front Hub Assembly
Ever wondered what the Front Hub Assembly is? A Wheel Hub Assembly (WHA) known as hub assembly, wheel hub unit, wheel hub bearing, etc. is the automotive component that is present in most automobiles, commercial vehicles, and light and heavy trucks.
What is the purpose of Front Hub Assembly?
A wheelbase is the mounting assembly for a vehicle's wheel, which houses both the wheel bearing and the lugs. Some new vehicles also have an electrical sensor and an ABS sensor attached to the power connector. The purpose of the wheel hub is to hold the wheel onto the bearing while connecting it to the vehicle. The only portion that keeps the wheels to the car is the wheel hub, so careful installation of these parts is extremely necessary.
Where is Front Hub Assembly Located?
The Wheel Hub Assembly is located between the drive axle and the brake drums or discs. It is bolted onto a wheel. The hub end comes equipped with the splined teeth, depending on the construction. The teeth are matted on the shaft of the axle. The axle hub spins along with the wheels that are bound to it, and provides the wheels with the power to rotate. A roller bearing between the hub axle and shaft axle ensures the non-drive wheels are rotated easily. It is fixed on the axle side of the chassis to the holding bracket; on the disc side, the wheel is fixed onto the Wheel Hub Assembly bolts.
