Rod ends consist of a housing with integral shank and a spherical plain bearing. This plain bearing is composed of an inner and outer ring without rolling elements. Rod ends are often mounted on the end of hydraulic or pneumatic cylinders. They are also used to connect two shafts. Rod ends can accommodate misalignment, and they support radial forces in a tensile or compressive direction.
