The flexible connection provides the displacement alignment. In addition, the disk absorbs small shocks and vibrations. This makes it possible to install a smaller cardan shaft. This reduces the costs any durability and safety losses. In some vehicles joint disk is situated between steering box and steering wheel.
The joint disc / Hardy disc is usually vulcanized in metal liners. However, there are models where the disc has a free position between two support members. A popping noise when starting, changing loads or switching usually indicates that the joint disk is damaged. When you replace the disk, it is necessary to note cardan shaft's position on the steering box not to make a mistake when mounting. You can order many other spare car parts in our Internet store.
