Front and all-wheel drive
Constant Velocity joints contained within your vehicle’s drive axle allow constant torque to be applied to the drive wheels while allowing the axle to bend and flex while steering and riding over bumps and potholes. They are covered by a rubber or neoprene boot that is packed with a special lubricating grease. These boots can become torn or cracked over time and will allow the grease to escape leaving the joint exposed to the elements. Drive axles can be saved if the boot is replaced quickly enough, unfortunately only a visual inspection will catch this as once a noise is heard, the damage has been done and the shaft must be replaced.
Rear wheel drive
Universal joints allow fixed driveshafts to flex between the transmission and the vehicle’s differentials. They become worn over time and should be replaced at the first sign of wear.
