For over the last ten years, LN Engineering has been supplying replacement IMS bearings to the aftermarket to address known issues brought to light by the Eisen class action lawsuit.
The single row bearing utilized from model year 2000 through 2005 are the weakest of bearings. If you haven't replaced your bearing yet, now is time to consider a replacement.
Fact 1: IMS bearings have service intervals.
However, there are many, over 35,000 vehicles, with IMS bearings that were replaced many years ago that may need replacement. The IMS Retrofit, unlike the IMS Solution, is designed to be a service item. Whether you are the owner of a vehicle already Retrofitted or looking to buy one, there are a few things you should know.
The Classic Single Row IMS Retrofit has a 4 year or 50,000 mile service interval, whichever comes first.
Years later, the Single Row Pro was released that allowed a dual row bearing to be fitted with a longer 6 year or 75,000 mile interval.
