AXLES and DRIVE SHAFTS
DESCRIPTION OF AXLE, CV JOINT, DRIVESHAFT REPAIR
Your vehicle’s axle, CV joint, and driveshaft components are integral to the
performance and drivability of your vehicle. The driveshaft is a steel or
aluminum cylindrical component that connects the transmission to the rear
differential. The driveshaft connects to the transmission through the CV joints,
which are responsible for transferring the torque from the transmission to the
drive wheels at a constant speed. Front wheel drive vehicles use CV joints on
the front axles. CV joints allow the axle to bend and change while accommodating
the bounce of the wheels. The axle bears the weight of the vehicle while also
being strong enough to sustain the forces from braking and accelerating. Over
time and through normal use, your vehicle’s axle, CV joint, and driveshaft
components may require maintenance or replacement services.
BENEFITS OF AXLE, CV JOINT, DRIVESHAFT REPAIR
There are signs to look for when determining when to schedule an inspection of
your vehicle’s front axle, rear axle, CV joints, and driveshaft components.
Clunking or clicking noises are signs that a CV joint needs replacement.
Vibrations during acceleration may indicate a damaged driveshaft, though they
may also point to an axle issue depending on the layout of your vehicle. Turning
and steering issues may also arise out of a problem with the driveshaft. CV
joints can go bad when the grease leaks out of a damaged CV boot. There are
various determinants for how quickly your vehicle’s axle, CV joint, and
driveshaft components will degrade over time. If you would like to learn more
