Zug = traction, pull, - Schub = thrust
Explanation:
Schub = thrust

Other related terms:

Axialzylinderrollenlager = thrust cylindrical roller bearing
Axialbeanspruchung = thrust load
Schubbeiwert = thrust coefficient
Schubbewegung = thrust motion
Schubbeschleunigung - thrust acceleration

Zug = traction

related terms:

Fahrzeugantriebsdifferential = traction differential

I would suggest to use the term "traction" in this case.
