Tech/Engineering - Automotive / Cars & Trucks / Electronic Parts Catalogue
English term or phrase: CR GRW / CV
This is supposedly an electronic parts catalogue, although not everything is electronic related. Since it's a catalogue, and it's obviously arranged alphabetically, there is very little to no context to help.

I have these two items which are almost the same, but change at the end, and the reference material provided doesn't help. The sentences are all abbreviated, but I will write them properly, except for these acronyms/abbreviations I am asking about:

Ball, Rear wheel drive shaft inner CR GRW (GRW might be a brand name)
Ball, Rear wheel drive shaft outer CV

I believe the second one (CV) may stand for Constant Velocity:
Rótula homocinética (o de velocidad constante) exterior...

My apologies for asking two questions in just one post, but I find them very related, and therefore, it would make it easier for you to come up with an answer, I believe.

Thank you in advance for your help!

I'm sorry to give you these in English, but I think you can translate them better than I can. I really do not know whether the abbreviations are used only by the company which publishes this catalogue.


CR Locking ring.


GRW Rear weel bearing.

CV: unable to find this in this catalogue, sorry.
