Every truck, RV and bus need axles in order to operate properly. The axles are essential components that serve to conduct the power that causes the wheels of your vehicle to turn. The axle is a rod or shaft that rotates the wheels and supports your heavy-duty vehicle’s weight. Certain things, such as clocking many miles, dealing with potholes and poor road conditions, covering uneven surfaces and hauling heavy loads can all contribute to strain on your axle. If your truck’s axle is damaged, it runs the risk of separating or jamming while you are driving. As a result, your axle should be monitored for misalignment and straightened from time to time in order to ensure that your truck is operating as efficiently as possible. At Absolute Repair, you can rely on our certified, honest technicians to maintain your vehicle’s axle so that you can enjoy a smoother ride and a longer vehicle lifespan.
Signs of axle damage or misalignment
- Wobbly wheels
- Steering less responsive and not level while driving
- The steering wheel is slow to return to center after making a turn
- Vibrations in your wheel that increase at higher speeds
- Pulling to the left or right while driving
There are quite a few ways that you can tell if your vehicle’s axle is damaged or misaligned. Some of these signs may be small, and as such can be easy to either ignore or miss altogether.
