For the best performance and drivability of your vehicle, it is of utmost importance to have your drive shaft, axles, and CV joints regularly maintained. These parts are all integral for a properly running vehicle. The drive shaft is made of aluminum or steel and connects the transmission through the CV joints, which then transfer torque from the transmission to the wheels at a constant speed. Over time, your vehicle’s drive shafts, CV joints, and axles will need some maintenance and possible replacing. Signs to look out for that your drive shaft, axles, or joints need to be serviced are clicking or clunking noises, vibrations during accelerating, and turning or steering issues.
