Drive Axles and CV Joints Repair Littleton
Dakota Ridge Auto, Littleton Colorado, 80127
When you drive in tight circles, do you hear a clicking, clunking, or cracking noise? If you do, you probably have a worn joint on your axle, and you should bring it in to Dakota Ridge Auto to have it repaired immediately. If you don’t repair it soon, you could lose control of your vehicle.
Here’s why. Your vehicle’s drive axles, CV joints, and driveshaft components are important to the performance and drivability of your vehicle. You don’t want to lose control of your car, truck, or SUV because the axles aren’t working correctly.
The axle connects the two wheels together in the front and back by the CV joint which allows the wheels to move freely, bending and changing while handling the bounce of the wheels. So obviously CV joints get a lot of wear and tear and require regular inspection. Our expert technicians can take a look at them and tell you if something is wrong.
Trucks and off-road vehicles have axles that keep the wheel positions steady under heavy stress including heavy loads, but no matter what kind of vehicle you drive, your vehicle’s axle must bear the weight of your vehicle and whatever you are carrying, but it also needs to be strong enough to sustain the forces of your vehicle’s braking and accelerating.
Drive axles and CV joints make sure that power is continually transferred to the drive wheels, so if you have a corroded, locked up, or otherwise malfunctioning CV joint it will often result in lost power transfer and axle failure and that can be scary.
CV joints sometimes go bad when the grease leaks out of a damaged CV boot. Over time and through normal use, your vehicle’s axle, CV joint, and driveshaft components may require maintenance or replacement services. You should have your drive axles and CV joints inspected.
