Your vehicle’s axle, CV joint and driveshaft are critical to the performance and the life of your vehicle. These three components is what takes power from the transmission and send it to the wheels that drive your car or truck.
How it works. Constant-velocity joints (CV joints) allow a drive shaft to transmit power through a variable angle, at constant rotational speed, without an appreciable increase in friction or play. They are mainly used in front wheel drive vehicles, and many modern rear wheel drive cars with independent rear suspension typically use CV joints at the ends of the rear axle half shafts and increasingly use them on the drive shafts. Constant-velocity joints are protected by a rubber boot, a CV gaiter, usually filled with molybdenum disulfide grease. Cracks and splits in the boot will allow contaminants in, which would cause the joint to wear quickly. The axle bears the weight of the vehicle and supports the forces from braking and accelerating.
Through normal use, the axle, CV joint, and driveshaft elements may require maintenance or repair. Peekskill Auto Repair have worked on hundreds of trucks and cars and experts when it comes to the axle, CV joint, and driveshaft.
