Differential Rebuilding & Repair

Differentials are very tough but they do eventually wear out. There are a number of components to your vehicle’s differential, sometimes referred to as a rear end. Some differentials contain clutches, and all of them have axles and axle bearings, which are subject to wear. The main components of the rear end are the ring and pinion gears.

Rear End Gear Swaps

Swapping the gears in ride your with different ones, involves removing the driveline, rear wheels, axles, brakes, and removing the old gears before installing new ones. It takes real skill to get the replacement gears properly aligned, so this is not something you should attempt yourself. The differential has to be carefully reassembled in order to prevent leaks. Then we reinstall the axles, attach the wheels, and fill the differential with gear oil. Gear oil is a special lubricant that is different from engine oil, or automatic transmission fluid.

Install Positraction Rear Ends

For high-performance vehicles, you can improve your rear wheel traction with the installation of a positraction unit. There are two type of Positraction, one called “limited-slip” differential and they other is a full locking differential, where both rear wheels always turn the same amount. Bring your performance vehicle in and let us show you how a positraction rear end can give you better traction.

CV Joints

Front wheel drive vehicles have some different components than rear wheel drive vehicles. Because the front wheels are pulling the vehicle, as well as steering it, CV joints are required to allow the wheels to turn left and right. CV Joints, which is short for Constant Velocity Joints, are complex and have to be strong enough for hard acceleration, yet flexible to allow you to steer.

CV joints are protected from debris by a flexible covering known as a boot. Regularly checking the boot for wear helps keep your CV Joints clean and extents their lifespan. When CV joints begin to wear, they will start making noises, particularly when turning. Do not ignore those noises. We recommend visually inspecting the CV boots on a regular and consistent schedule.

Driveline Balancing

If you are feeling a vibration when you are going down the road, and you’ve had your tires balanced already, you may have an out of balance driveline. The faster you go, the faster your driveline spins, so it needs to be perfectly balanced eliminate vibration. If you suspect that your driveline might be out of balance, make an appointment for us to check it for you.

U-joint replacement

U-joints connect your drive line rear differential and to your transmission. Needle bearings in the universal joints, make a clicking sound at low speeds, when they are failing. Another symptom of failing u-joints is a unusual clunk when you put your transmission in gear. When you hear unusual noises, schedule a check up for your car, so we can find the problem.
