Regular axle inspection is key to avoiding more costly repairs down the road. The cost of car axle repair can dramatically increase if you have to replace one or both axles.
The axles connect and provide power to the front and rear wheels to the car. As a rotating part, the axles require regular maintenance and repair to stay in good working order.
If you do not have your bearings replaced in time, you might need to have your axles serviced, as well. Both front and rear axle repair consists of full replacement of those parts.
Having Meineke Car Care specialists perform the front axle repair keeps the moving components from excessively wearing down the connection point at the transmission. Rear axle repairs effectively protect the moving parts inside the differential.
Call or stop by your local Meineke Car Care Centre if you ever notice shimmying, shaking, or shuddering while driving your vehicle. It pays to have your drivetrain components inspected for problems before they require replacing. Technicians can often spot developing issues with a simple visual inspection after lifting your vehicle up on the rack. Lubricant application may buy you some time, but cited repair needs should be handled in a timely manner to keep your vehicle in safe driving condition.
To find out the current state of your car’s axles, call your local Meineke Car Care Centre and arrange for an appointment to inspect it properly.
