Your vehicle relies on axles and driveshafts in order to turn its wheels properly. The axles’ support points–bearings and bushings–must be replaced periodically in order to ensure your vehicle’s performance. If you hear a clicking noise or notice your vehicle does not turn or drive as easily as usual, you may need to have your axles serviced.
The driveshaft on your vehicle transfers power from the engine to the axles. Some vehicles–such as those with four-wheel drive–may have two driveshafts. Typically, by performing regular maintenance on your driveshaft, such as replacing joints. Symptoms of a driveshaft in need of repair include: clunking noises when accelerating or shifting between drive and reverse; vibration when driving; and squeaking when driving. Failing to service your driveshaft as needed could cause other parts of the vehicle to be damaged.
The differential also transfers power from the engine to the wheels. Normally, differentials simply need to have the fluid replaced on a regular basis according to the maintenance schedule; by replacing the fluid in your vehicle’s differential as scheduled.
