AXLE, DRIVESHAFT, DIFFERENTIAL INSPECTION AND REPAIR In Toronto, Peel, Mississauga, Brampton
The driveshaft, axle and CV joint components in your vehicle can make or break its drivability and performance, so it's important to inspect them regularly. The driveshaft, a round aluminum or steel component connecting the rear differential to the transmission, constantly transfers the torque to the drive wheels from the transmission by way of the CV joints. The axle handles all of your vehicle's weight, while sustaining the effects of acceleration or braking with its strength. CV joints are used on the front axles in a vehicle with front wheel drive, allowing flexible bending and changing in the axle while the wheels are bouncing. Due to the wear and tear through regular driving use, your vehicle's CV joint, driveshaft and axle will need to be checked and sometimes replaced.
By checking and repairing your vehicle's driveshaft, CV joints and both front and rear axle regularly, you will ensure its safety for you and your passengers. If your car, truck or SUV vibrates when it accelerates, your driveshaft may be damaged or your axle may have an issue. If you hear clicking or clunking sounds, it's a sign that your CV joint needs to be replaced. If you are experiencing any problems with your vehicle's steering or turning, this is an indication that your driveshaft may need repair. Over time these components will degrade, so give us a call to find out more about how often you should get your axle assembly components, driveshafts, CV joints and U-joints looked at.
