Common Axle Issues in Trucks and Fleets
- Worn Out Bearings: Bearings are essential for the smooth rotation of the wheels. Over time, due to constant wear and tear, these bearings can wear out. If not addressed promptly, worn-out bearings can lead to more severe axle damage.
- Damaged CV Joints: Constant Velocity (CV) joints are a crucial part of the axle assembly, allowing the axle to flex while transmitting power from the engine to the wheels. A damaged CV joint can cause clicking noises when turning and compromise the vehicle's stability.
- Axle Shaft Damage: Axle shafts can get bent or damaged due to heavy loads or accidents. A bent axle shaft can lead to uneven tire wear and reduced fuel efficiency.
