English term or phrase: Bus Joints
Automotive term.

This is the paragraph:

"We have introduced some of our products: our wheel hubs, brake shoes, disks and linings, in addition to components for suspension, bus joints, water and oil pumps, among some others..."

I don't think that "bus" has to do with the vehicle, as "bus bar", for example, is not translated as "barra de autobús" but as "barra de conexión".

ARTICULACIONES MECANICAS


Explanation:
Esta sería una traducción genérica para diversos tipos de productos afines con el contenido del documento a traducir (componentes de transmisión/suspensión/dirección de vehículos). Asumiendo que existe una imprecisión en el término BUS JOINTS (que de hecho no aparece en los catálogos de la compañía, y cuya función sería necesario conocer), la traducción precisa podría ser:

JUNTAS DE CARDAN o JUNTAS UNIVERSALES (U-JOINTS), término que aparece traducido algunos sitios de venta en internet como BUS JOINTS

ROTULAS (BALL JOINTS), asumiendo que se emplea BUS por BALL (indicado en referencias)
JUNTAS HOMOCINÉTICAS(CV-JOINTS) ...

Reference: bus joints

Reference information:
May it be they call *ball joints* bus joints? Since they are talking about suspensions. Ex: Ball joints, bar joints, suspension joints, suspension bar.

Also *bus bar* looks more electronic than automotive, according the following link. Is the rest of the text about just cars or does it include buses?
