Draft shaft repairs can be challenging
but our professional team attacks the problem at its roots.
The driveshaft is a steel or aluminum cylindrical component that connects the transmission to the front and/or rear differential. The driveshaft connects to the transmission through the universal joints, which are responsible for transferring the torque from the transmission to the drive wheels at a constant speed.
Signs that your drive shaft may need repair are:
- Clunking noises when the vehicle is in motion
- Vibration that intensifies as the car accelerates
- Strong vibration coming from the vehicle’s floorboards
- Resistance when maneuvering the car around corners
- Squeaking or rattling noises
- Visible play in the U joints when you grab or otherwise manually move the drive shaft
- Visible signs of U joint wear, such as rust around the yoke
