R-G Ball Joints
The Tuthill R-G Series (SAE J490/Type G/Style 2) offers a widely used and economic metal to metal ball joint design. Ball stud and body are produced from low carbon steel and the ball stud is heat treated. All parts are zinc plated and treated with a yellow dichromate for corrosion resistance and consistent appearance. The precision heat treated ball is inserted into the shell and a precise crimping process retains the ball while providing sufficient movement of the ball stud without excessive play. A rubber grommet seal provides for durable contaminant protection. Right and left-handed threads (for metric sizes — consult factory) are available in a variety of configurations.
The R-G Series is just one of many within our broad line of ball joints. For full product line detail, contact us for a comprehensive catalog or visit www.tuthill.com and download individual product data sheets and other product information.
