What is an axle?

Your axles are the last link in transferring power from the engine to your wheels/tires. They're strong parts that last a long time – but like every other part they can run into trouble. There are different kinds of axles, each with their own potential problems. Most cars today have "constant velocity" drive axles. These axles are constantly articulating and moving as the name implies. You may have heard a service technician refer to CV boots or axle boots. These are the rubber boots that protect the CV joint while you drive. Your Southampton Pennsylvania service technician knows this and checks for things like leaking seals, torn CV boots, and worn axle joints. An inspection will reveal if there are any axle related problems. If there is a concern with an axle,it will be removed and inspected. If the shaft is in good shape, it can be reused. Damaged CV boots are replaced as well. It's important to have Frank's Servicenter Inc. take care of this work as soon as you become aware of a problem. Waiting only makes the damage worse and more expensive to repair later.
