Axle suspension/final drive auto parts: Propshaft / PTO Shaft
The driveshaft is responsible that turn of the car wheels will not be accidental, and will be smooth and uniform at the wheel hub. A wheel bearing is composed of two rings, the inner and the outer ring. Three types of wheel bearings are the most common: radial ball bearing, annular hearing and tapered roller bearings. Wheel bearing carries not only the weight of the car, but also the force of the wheel axle suspension.
Driveshafts are constantly exposed to heavy loads during vehicle operation. Problems with driveshafts can occur suddenly, but this situation is very rare. In most cases, errors or defects occur as a result of wear and tear. The skilled and experienced driver knows his car very well and he listens to the sounds of car. Problem wheel hub bearings emit noise while driving. This is especially typical when driving on a curve road: for a left turn you can hear the sound on the right wheel and vice versa. Another striking sign of a wheel bearing wear is a moving (vibration) of the wheel perpendicular to the car. So you can "feel" the game of the wheel bearing. Especially if the vibration is observed at the case when you don’t push the brake.
If a part is damaged, it must be replaced. But this work is not suitable for amateurs. For removing and installing the wheel bearing you need special tools. Moreover, it requires strong physical effort. It is unlikely that a hammer or other tools are suitable for this work. If you need some care parts, you'll find it in our shop. Here you can find a horn, rear shock, flange, electrical, driveshaft or other car parts.
