Axle Shafts

Keep Your Wheels Turning

When you are driving your vehicle, it can be easy to forget just how much work it is doing. Of course, what is happening behind the scenes is a very complex process which uses numerous components all working in harmony with each other to move you along the road. This is what makes maintenance so important because an issue with one component can cause serious problems, and one part you need to be careful with is an axle shaft.

The wheels on your vehicle need to be turned by something when you are driving, and this is an axle shaft that does the job. By turning at increasing speeds as you drive faster and faster, axle shafts keep your wheels turning, while also maintaining your ability to drive in a straight line. Axle shafts are one of the last connections from the final drive system on your vehicle to each wheel, which is why they have an important job to do every time you drive.

When you think about what the axle shafts in your vehicle are doing every day, it becomes obvious that they need to be able to handle a lot of pressure. This is why they are built from very solid steel, and are in fact one of the strongest parts of the vehicle. The connection to the wheel is also extremely strong because of the stresses involved, which makes them heavy but also very likely to work for a long time. Each axle shaft is also able to connect to the drivetrain of the vehicle, and this end needs to be able to handle the constant spinning every time you move the vehicle.

When you think of the amount of work being performed, it becomes obvious that your axle shafts are in danger of breaking down. The problems you can experience are varied but serious, including a complete break somewhere along the axle shaft itself. The connection to either the wheel or the drivetrain can also break over time, and this is something you do not want to experience. Of course, the biggest killer of axle shafts is wear and tear, which means if you own a vehicle for long enough, there is a good chance you will experience issues.

However, the good news is that most problems will warn you before they become as serious as something actually breaking. The biggest warning of future problems is noise, and if you hear noises like whining, humming or loud thumps as you are driving along, it can be a sign that one or more parts of the axle shaft is becoming weaker and is about to break down. Of course, nothing beats visual inspections and if you look at your axle shafts and spot serious rust, cracks, fractures or other visual damage, you should be taking immediate action to avoid the axle shaft breaking when you least expect it.

Nice parts! Look outstanding, especially among those old corroded parts. After such a good experience, I'm looking for something else by Precision Gear to order from CARiD.
