Whether your vehicle needs a driveshaft balance or
new u-joints Trans-tech Transmission and Auto
Service can repair your driveshaft or install universal joints. Simply put, the driveshaft is a steel or aluminum cylindrical component that connects the transmission to the rear differential. It connects to the transmission through CV joints. These transfer torque from the transmission to the drive wheels at a constant speed.
The axle bears the weight of the vehicle while being strong enough to sustain the forces brought on from accelerating and braking. Over time your vehicle’s axle, CV joint, and driveshaft components will require maintenance and/or replacement. In brief, your vehicle’s axle, CV joint and driveshaft components are integral to the general performance of your vehicle.
There are clear signs to indicate it may be time to schedule an inspection of your vehicle’s front axle, rear axle, CV joints, and driveshaft components. These include:
• Clunking noises are signs that a CV joint may need replacing;
• Vibrations during acceleration may indicate a damaged driveshaft or an axle problem;
• Turning and steering issues may arise if there are problems with the driveshaft;
• CV joints can also go bad when the grease leaks out of a damaged CV boot.
There are various factors for determining how quickly your vehicle’s axle, CV joint, and driveshaft components will degrade over time. If you would like to learn more about the intervals between repairs for front wheel drive axles, main driveshafts, CV joints, U-joints, yokes, and other axle assembly components contact us today.
