Description of Axle, CV Joint, Driveshaft Repair
The components of your vehicle’s axle, CV joint, and driveshaft are vital to your vehicle’s durability and drivability. The driveshaft is a cylindrical part of steel or aluminum, which connects the transmission to the rear differential.The driveshaft attaches to the transmission through the CV joints, which are responsible for transmitting the torque at a constant pace from the transmission to the drive wheels. Vehicles with front wheel drive use CV joints on the front axles. CV joints allow the axle to bend and change while the accommodating wheel bounces. The axle bears the vehicle’s weight while being strong enough to support the braking and accelerating forces as well. The components of your vehicle’s axle, CV joint, and driveshaft can require repair or replacement services over time through regular usage.
