Information - Axle shaft

Drive shaft of both front and rear axles transmits the driving force of the engine directly to the drive wheels. At the same time it provides the desired angles of drive wheels rotation and compensation of vibration amplitude of the suspension. At the same time unwanted vibration noise effects are isolated. Each axial drive shaft consists of two equal angular velocity joints. One joint is fixed. It is located on the drive wheel side. Another joint is floating one. It is situated from the gear box side. The joints are connected with the help of a profile shaft.

In addition to the vibration and noise suppression, the main roles performed by the drive shaft are the effects on the dynamics of the car and therefore the extension of service life, as well as efficiency and optimization of its weight. Almost every day drive shafts are subjected to transformation, as car parts makers are constantly optimizing their products, improving both technology and material characteristics in the course of the research.

Every car enthusiast knows that the modern drive shafts increase the overall safety of the car, as new shafts are provided with high torsion rigidity. They also increase the life of the car at high speeds. If there are problems with the drive shaft or joints, it is necessary to replace this important auto part. If, when driving your car, you hear noise and at high speed or when cornering there is vibration, it is necessary to check the drive shaft.

What you need to know about drive shaft replacement: lifetime limits, common defects and their signs, tips and recommendations

The drive shaft has no certain lifetime limit.

Specialists recommend to perform diagnostics of the rear and front drive shafts every 60 000 – 80 000 operational kilometers. The drive shaft is subject to replacement as an assembly only in case of heavy wear-out of several elements or in case of damage at a road accident.

Necessity to perform half-axle diagnostics is indicated by wheel slip at gear shifting, transmission oil leakage, foreign sound and vibration near the car drive shaft. There also can be troubles at gear shifting, knocking and cracking at turning and inclinations of the car during driving along straight line.

Rear and front half-axles diagnostics lies in their visual inspection. For this you need to set the car onto a service pit, then estimation of components condition is performed, particularly, that of the front drive shaft. If dents and cracks are on the drive shafts then the parts are to be replaced.

You should install new details at a service station. To do this, specialists should unscrew the fixation nut and disconnect the rod of the stabilizer bar from the lower suspension arm. Then the car is set onto a lifting platform, the wheel is demounted as well as the engine protection, after that automatic transmission fluid is drained. Then specialists unscrew the drive shaft fixation nut with the help of a special tool, then the ball joint nut is also unscrewed and the suspension arm is disconnected from the steering knuckle. Then for left drive shaft replacement you need to turn the steering wheel to the right to stop, pull the steering knuckle with the hub outward and remove the broken down shaft from the differential. For the right drive shaft you need to turn the steering wheel to the left to stop, unscrew bolts of the central bearing, take the hub with the steering knuckle outward and remove the drive shaft. After this a new component is installed and assembling is performed.

Before installing the new drive shaft, check the condition of the inner CV joint boots and seals. Perform their replacement if necessary.
