Popular Questions Asked
What does a drive shaft do?
Driveshafts are specifically referenced as the shaft that runs between the gearbox and the rear differential. However with the advent of front wheel drive, all wheel drive and independent rear suspension any of the axle shafts connecting the differential to the drive wheels are now referred to as a drive shaft.
Repco sell the majority of their driveshafts as complete assemblies and these will comprise both an inner and outer CV joint as well as the interconnecting drive shaft. This assembly will transfer drive from the differential to the wheel hub.
How do I know if my drive shaft needs replacing?
Excessive play in the drive shafts of your vehicle will produce both vibration and speed up wear to surrounding parts and components leading to the possibility of failure. Drive shaft vibration also plays a factor in the wear and necessity to replace CV joints as these also come with a high risk of failure if left unchecked. By purchasing an all in one unit with both the drive shaft and CV Joint ensures you have a perfectly balanced and machined component to ensure long lasting, reliable performance.
Keep on top of any potential problems by visually checking these periodically and ensuring any additional signs other than noise and vibration may be excess grease on components or tears in the CV boot.
Can you drive with a damaged drive shaft?
As you could expect when driving a car or truck with driveline vibration it is only a matter of time before a component fails and leaves you stranded. There is also potential for further damage along other parts in the drive train so it is always best to attend to the first signs of something being wrong.
