Explanation:

"bolas a rótula": 'socket ball joints'.

swivel track rollers ???


Explanation:
Hi,

bola de un rodamiento = track roller
From: Diccionario técnico inglés/españo;; F. Beigbeder

As far as I am aware 'rótulo' is a heading, title or label which does not make much sense in the context. However, rótula is traditionally a 'ball-and-socket joint' and can be translated with hinge joint, swivel, swivel joint.
This does make sense. Look at web site:

Hope this helps!
