The differential in your car, truck or SUV is responsible for smooth maneuvering around every turn. Without it, your vehicle would be unstable and slip or bump through corners. The intricate device allows the wheels to spin independently at different speeds, so that when you turn right, the inner right-side wheels rotate slowly and the exterior left-side wheels rotate more quickly to turn steadily. Every vehicle has a differential, but not all are the same or built in the same place. On a front-wheel drive vehicle the differential is at the transaxle, while on an all-wheel drive vehicle the differential is on both axles. But you don’t have to worry about all the technicalities of the differential, L&R Transmissions in Winston Salem, NC already has all the expertise and skills to perform differential repairs!
