Moog Strut Mount - Bearing Not Included?

Hi everyone, I'm just a bit confused, I'm wanting some Moog strut mounts for when I fit my Dobison's lift, but the Rock Auto listing says 'bearing not included'

I can't find this mentioned anywhere else, and Moog has not returned my email - does anyone know if this is really the case?

Do people who buy this kit just re-use the OEM bearing? I couldn't find a listing for the bearing on its own.

Part number is: MOOG K160050

I just replaced every bit of suspension on mine. Used the moog mounts as well. Pretty sure there is no bearing involved.

The strut does not turn so there is no bearing, what you got is all you need.

Thanks, that's interesting as the other brands all say bearing included!

As stated, there is no bearing. On a mcPherson strut assembly, there is a lower control arm, knuckle and the strut that bolts to the knuckle and up to the strut tower. The whole strut turns as the wheel turns on this type of setup and will have a bearing or thrust washer up on top. On the WK it is a coil over with the strut mounted more or less solidly (via bushings/mounts) it does not rotate with the steering so there is no bearing mounted on top.

That is interesting that some manufacturers are calling for a bearing.

Thanks, I'll go with the Moog ones then! That does make sense, I was just really confused that they say there is a bearing included.
