Drive Train


Universal Joint (U Joint) Replacement

The U-Joint is a pivoting connection on each end of the drive shaft(s). The constant rotation of these joints, over time, causes them to wear out. Routine checks should be done on these joints every two years, or 40,000 miles, whichever comes first. Keep in mind that lifted vehicles create a greater angle on these joints, causing quicker wear and tear, and should be inspected every year or 20,000 miles.

Differential Service

The differential fluid on rear wheel drive vehicles can often be forgotten about. Just as in other oils, over time this fluid breaks down, eliminating any lubricating properties it once had. We recommend changing the differential fluid every 3-5 years, or 50,000 miles. More frequent changes may be required with excessive towing or harsh driving conditions.

Transfer Case Service

The simplest way to explain a transfer case is by referring to is a secondary transmission. Transfer cases are found on 4-wheel drive vehicles, and is responsible for the 4WD mechanism. The fluid in these systems should be changed every 5 years, or 60,000 miles. Changes should be done more frequently with heavier 4-wheel drive use.

CV Joints and CV Axels

Constant Velocity Axels are the pivoting joint between a transfer case (or transmission) and the front wheels of a vehicle. Similiar to U-Joints, these axels/joints wear out and require replacement. They should be checked every 5 years, or 50,000 miles.

Transmission Service

The transmission is the driving force behind your vehicle. Fluids should be changed regularly allowing your transmission to last the life of your vehicle. Changes for most vehicles should be every 4-5 years or 50,000 miles. More frequent changes may be required with excessive towing or harsh driving conditions.
