Information - Drive shaft flex joint

The hinge of the front suspension is a high quality product with a number of technical advantages, which provide a smooth transfer of all loads from the wheels to the body. It also maintains high ride in different weather conditions during the entire life cycle.

For a long and reliable operation of the drive axles, it is necessary to maintain the recommendable level of oil in the crankcases. Apart from that, the driver must frequently check how well are tightened the bolts attaching the main gear to the crankcase. In order to adjust the main gear, we first must coordinate the primary preload of the cone type bearings, as well as check out the clutch contact of a pair of bevel gears directly to the main transmission. Keep in mind that adjustments can be made only when the main gear is disabled. All work must be accomplished very carefully, because improper adjustment of the bearings can lead not only to damage of bearings, but also to the deterioration of the main transmission.

In order to keep your vehicle on the go and avoid accidents, you must carefully monitor the condition of its main operating units, including the undercarriage. In case of malfunctions, the parts must be repaired or replaced. It is necessary to pay attention to the most important parts of the main mechanisms and to replace the worn out parts.
