Why is inspecting your axle, CV joints, and driveshaft so important? Your vehicle’s driveshaft turns the axles, which turns your wheels. The driveshaft connects to the transmission through the CV joints, which are responsible for transferring the torque from the transmission to the drive wheels at a constant speed, while accommodating the bouncing of the suspension. CV joints today can most commonly be found in vehicles with front-wheel drive. The axle bears the weight of the vehicle while also being strong enough to bare the forces from braking and accelerating. A damaged drive shaft could cost you more then just the life time health of your vehicle if it breaks. Your vehicle’s driveshaft is a tubular, steel cylindrical piece that connects the main driveshaft to the wheels.
There are many determinants that point to which component is experiencing failure, but generally there are a few things you can look out for to alert you to a problem with your axle, CV joints, or driveshaft. A damaged driveshaft is what will usually cause a vehicle to vibrate while moving. Noises indicating a problem with the driveshaft will typically get worse at greater speeds. Turning issues will also arise from a problem with the driveshaft. CV joints can go bad when the grease is lost from a faulty CV boot. Rattling noises and vibrations during low acceleration are sure signs of a CV joint needed replacement. When there is a problem with your vehicle’s axle, you might be able to feel the vibrations through the steering wheel. Problems with axles can also point to worn wheel bearings.
