BEST driveshafts PART DEALS MINIMUM EFFORT!
Driveshafts in our vehicles play a crucial role because they help deliver the engine's power to the wheels efficiently. Without a functioning driveshaft you will not be able to drive your vehicle. Here we explain more.
Vehicle driveshafts play an important part in delivering power from the engine to each of your vehicle's wheels. The process is straightforward and it transfers the engine's rotational power, or torque, under the vehicle to one of the axles using the transmission. Driveshafts tend to be made of aluminium or steel and it's an important component in the drivetrain mechanism - which in itself is a complex part. However, because of the work it does, the driveshaft has to deal with intense movement and pressure and has been carefully designed to deal with the strength of the power being delivered, essentially, bearing the torque load and also the inertia which is when too much weight is caused.
Driveshaft is located underneath the car
Since the driveshaft is located underneath the car, it is exposed to the debris and salt thrown up from the road's surface so it can deteriorate and suffer with corrosion. There are other issues including hitting the kerb or being involved in a small collision which can damage the driveshaft. Also, a malfunctioning CV joint, that's the constant velocity axle joint, can also damage the driveshaft. It's really important to maintain CV joints as well as the CV boot to help protect the driveshaft where the power is transferred. If you're worried that there may be a problem with your driveshaft then you may hear a rattling or knocking noise, squeaking or juddering or there may be intense vibrations being felt through the steering wheel or on the floor. Most of these noises will occur when you turn the wheels or when parking; whatever the symptoms are, it's important that you get the issue diagnosed properly and then repaired before more expensive damage is caused to your vehicle.
Driveshafts are designed for long-term use
While driveshafts are designed for long-term use, you should bear in mind that the average lifespan will be around 75,000 miles, so you should be aware that there may be wear and tear issues that may need resolving. Also, while the driveshaft is fairly straightforward to repair, you may rack up much more in costs because of the labour involved which makes this an expensive component to replace. Also, you will need to buy a driveshaft that meets your vehicle manufacturer's criteria. There's the opportunity of buying OEM components, which is the original driveshaft fitted by the vehicle manufacturer, and there is also a strong aftermarket in other manufacturers' driveshafts that you could use. It may also be possible to source a driveshaft from scrapyards or a salvage firm which will be much cheaper and may deliver a long lifespan to meet your needs.
Searching for driveshafts
If you are searching for driveshafts for your vehicle, then it's important that you source quality components from a reputable supplier and that the driveshaft meets your vehicle manufacturer's criteria and the MorePartz site can help.
