Service Needed on Your Vehicle’s Driveshaft

WHAT IS THE DRIVESHAFT?

The driveshaft is a very important part of the vehicle’s drivetrain, transmitting torque from the transmission to the final drive or the wheels. The driveshaft must be secure yet adjustable, able to maintain its structural integrity through various movements in the suspension. Since all driveshafts are not constructed in the same manner, it takes an experienced technician to provide you with the most effective driveshaft repair or maintenance services.

Your vehicle’s driveshaft is designed to manipulate the amount of torque being transmitted to the transmission at the front of the vehicle, and to the differential at the rear. The driveshaft is a vital part of your vehicle’s ability to move. And it’s safe to assume that you want your vehicle to do more than just move, but you’d like your vehicle to move smoothly. Engineers and manufacturers have used precise measurement to exacting standards to make sure your driveshaft is well-built and effective.

To do its job, the driveshaft is constantly spinning at high speeds. This constant rotation will cause excessive wear-and-tear on individual drivetrain parts.
