Thrust bearings are special types of bearings manufactured to support axial stresses while enabling rotary motion between two moving parts. In fact, thrust refers to the axial loads under which these types of bearings are designed to operate. They are available in a wide range of designs, including ball, roller, fluid, and magnetic variations. In the automotive sector, ball and roller thrust bearings are commonly found in wheel hubs, and manual transmissions can utilize what is popularly known as a throw-out bearing as a part of the clutch mechanism.

Fasteners are one of the most useful components for any assembly, often being used to secure two or more parts together in a temporary or permanent fashion. The nut is a subtype of fastener, that of which pairs with a correlating screw or bolt to compress items together with ease. Nuts come in many variations depending on the task at hand, ranging from simple, hand-tightened hardware pieces to large and complex components that necessitate special tools for installation. When an assembly is faced with stressors such as vibration, there may be a concern for loosening fasteners. In such instances, special types of nuts should be used, those of which include lock nuts, jam nuts, and bearing lock nuts.
