Your auto chassis and driveline components are in constant motion. If your vehicle is front wheel drive, the CV joints drive your wheels. Rear wheel drive vehicles use a driveshaft with U joints for propulsion.
Both require lubrication and will fail prematurely if they are allowed to run dry. Most types of vehicles use flexible ball-in-socket joints in the suspension. These joints provide pivot points so your front wheels can turn and your suspension can absorb the bumps. (See the ball joints article or the tie-rod ends article for more information.)

CV joints, tie-rod ends, U joints and ball-joints all depend on lubrication and proper alignment to survive. Regular inspection and lubrication of under car chassis and suspension parts not only helps your chassis parts last longer - it could prevent an accident.
Auto chassis part failures are expensive to repair, compared to chassis maintenance, and may strand you on the highway. Annoying suspension squeaks and creaks are an indication that a bushing is dry and needs attention.
