The streets and freeways of Los Angeles can be hard on your vehicle. Rough roads and potholes take a toll on your chassis and suspension and can wear out components over time as you drive around Pasadena and the surrounding area. One important component that you will need to repair or replace sooner or later are your axles. As with everything else in your vehicle, regular inspections are key to avoiding more expensive repairs down the road. Getting a minor repair may be a hassle and hurt your wallet, but the cost can increase drastically if you end up having to replace any of your axles.
If your vehicle shudders or shakes while you are driving, you may have a problem with your bearings, axles, or other components in your drivetrain. Cleaning and replacing the lubricant that keeps your axles and bearings turning smoothly may be enough if the problem is noticed early enough, but if you need any parts replaced, they should be taken care of as soon as possible to prevent further damage and keep your vehicle safe to drive. When bringing your vehicle into your Certified Auto Repair Specialist of Pasadena, our technicians will always perform a visual inspection that may catch any axle issues before they become bigger problems.
Your car’s axles connect your front and rear wheels to your car, and at least one of them transfers power from your engine. Since they are a moving part, they require regular maintenance and repair to stay in good working order. If you do not replace your bearings on time, they will not turn as smoothly. This will lead to parts grinding against each other, and if the problem gets serious enough, you may need to have your axles replaced as well.
