Keeping Your Car In Top Working Condition
There are various determinants for how quickly your vehicle’s axle, CV joint, and driveshaft components will degrade over time, so it is important to contact our team for a service appointment once you notice any issues arising with any of these parts.
CV Axle Replacement
CV axles are common on both front-wheel and rear-wheel drive vehicles, so it is likely at some point that you will need to have this part of your vehicle inspected. Due to the extreme conditions endured by it, the CV axle will wear over time and often show symptoms such as popping or resisting when it becomes too worn or damaged to function properly. At the first sign of trouble, bring your vehicle into Tire Max so we can diagnose the problem before it becomes more serious.
The driveshaft, located between your vehicle’s differentials, is responsible for transferring torque and rotation to the drive wheels and other drivetrain components. Simply put, the driveshaft tells the wheels to switch from idle to drive and helps you to experience a smooth ride. The most common indicator of a problem with your driveshaft is vibration, because this usually means that the part is out of balance and therefore unstable. If you notice vibrating while driving, our Tire Max team will inspect your vehicle so we can diagnose the exact problem and begin the process of a driveshaft repair.
