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 vehicle’s weight while also being strong enough to sustain the forces from braking and accelerating. Over time and through normal use, your vehicle may be in need of axle, CV joint, and driveshaft repair, maintenance, or replacement services.
Axle, CV Joint, Driveshaft Repair Kendallville, IN
When determining when to schedule an inspection of your vehicle’s front axle, rear axle, CV joints, and driveshaft components, there are signs to look for. 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.
