    Axle Shafts

    If you've ever experienced a bad axle, you know how much they can affect your car's performance. You can suddenly be plagued with a severe vibration that can quickly damage other components. Fortunately, replacing your axle shafts is all it takes to restore balance. Turn to us for the parts that keep your wheels moving and your car cruising.

    Part of your car’s chassis, axle shafts connect the transmission to the drive wheels, delivering the power the wheels need to move. If you have a front-wheel-drive vehicle, the rear wheels have an axle shaft as well, although these shafts don’t deliver power. Passenger vehicles have two axle shafts while commercial vehicles such as dump trucks and semi-trucks have more to bear their significant weight loads. 

    There are two main types: solid and CV axle shafts. Solid shafts are more durable, but they don't allow the wheels to move independently of each other. The wheels are laterally connected and respond in tune with the other, potentially leading to a wheel lifting off the ground. They are commonly used in off-roading vehicles, such as Jeeps. CV axle shafts are designed for front-wheel-drive vehicles and feature two half-shafts. Each moves up and down independently in response to bumpy road conditions leading to improved handling. 

    When the axle shaft assembly on your vehicle starts to fail or go bad, there are several indicators you might experience. A clicking sound when you turn is one. Other signs of a failing shaft are leaking grease, which you'll notice if there's grease on the inside of your tire, and vibration when you're driving. Vibration doesn't necessarily mean that it's your axle assembly, but it does warrant a look. A failed half-shaft that comes loose can cause a lot of damage and possibly an accident; that’s why it’s important to address this problem early. 

    While it is labor intensive, if you're well-equipped with the tools and a lift or jack stands, you can replace axle shafts on your vehicle in an afternoon. Our experts will direct you to the parts and any special tools you need to get back on the road.

    Axle Shafts

    Transferring the power from your car's engine and transmission to the wheels, axle shafts, also called CV axle shafts, play an important role. The CV joints can wear out, usually after a torn, previously protective boot allows dirt into the joint. This is typically indicated via certain noises such as clicking or grinding.
