CV Axle Replacement Services
Originally, CV axles were used on front-wheel drive vehicles primarily. Today, it is common to find CV axles on both rear-wheel and front-wheel drive automobiles. The entire CV axle assembly consists of CV joints, CV boots, and an axle shaft, and this entire assembly is designed to work together. Responsible for delivering flexible power to the wheels, the CV axle transfers torque energy over a variety of terrains. This axle is located between the wheels responsible for propelling the vehicle (known as drive wheels), and works alongside your vehicle’s suspension to compensate for changes in terrain such as bumps or dips in the road and helps to keep the wheels turning at a constant rate. When you need CV axle replacement in Knoxville, TN or the surrounding areas, please call People’s Choice Auto Repair at (865) 272-3379.
The CV joints connect the axle to the wheels and transmission, and there are typically two sets of CV joints: inner and outer. The outer CV joints connect to the wheels, while the inner joints connect to the wheels. Together, these components provide stability and safety for your vehicle as it moves down the road, and the CV axle ensures your passengers are comfortable as the vehicle changes speeds and drives over different terrain.
CV Axle Assembly Wear
Over time, your CV axle assembly will eventually wear out. By its nature, the CV assembly is flexible, and the extreme conditions to which it is subjected put stress on the various components. Fortunately, there are a number of signs that point to a failing CV axle, such as difficulty turning or wheels that seem to hesitate before turning. Sudden pops while turning may indicate problems with your CV axle, although some signs may point to other issues, depending on the make and model of your vehicle.
Unaligned wheels, uneven wear on the tread of your tires, and pulling to one side are all signs that could mean problems with your CV axle, and any of these issues can be discovered with a CV axle inspection. Because the CV axle is made of separate parts that work together, it is necessary to change individual components as they wear down, which will keep your entire CV axle working properly and help prevent the need for an entire CV axle replacement.
