U-Joint Repair

Rear Axle U-Joint Replacements in Wolfforth, Texas

If the rear-wheel driveshaft on your car starts to vibrate, it is a sure sign of a problem with the vehicle’s U-joints. The U-joints are pieces of equipment that hold the driveshaft in place and, if not properly lubricated, will gradually wear out. Vibration is heard when the car is travelling at around 20mph and a driver may also hear clunking or banging noises when the car is changing gear.

In such circumstances, we at Jay's Home Auto Repair recommend the installation of replacement U-joints (short for Universal joint). Bring your vehicle into our premises in Wolfforth, Texas, and our expert mechanics will jack up the back side of the car, remove the driveshaft, and remove and replace all the U-joints at once, even if only one is faulty. It is advisable to have a mechanic lubricate the joints during all routine maintenance visits in order to prevent problems.

At Jay's Home Auto Repair we have decades of experience in diagnosing faulty U-joints on a vehicle’s driveshaft and replacing them. Vibration and banging noises are the tell-tale signs that the U-joints have worn out for whatever reason. Often if the height of the vehicle has been modified, the U-joints may give out. If one joint is faulty then we recommend replacing them all for safety reasons.
