It's important to have all the power you need when taking your 4X4 on an off-road adventure. Part of that comes from having solid front axle universal joints for smooth power transfer. If you're hearing a clunk followed by ringing when you shift into reverse, or a squeaking when you move forward or backwards, that's a sure sign that you need a replacement. A steady vibration when moving, or transmission fluid leaking from the back of the transmission could also mean that your u-joint needs to be replaced. Check out 4WheelParts.com to find a replacement from our huge inventory of quality CMT Racing front axle u-joints.
Know When to Replace Your Front Axle U-Joints
U-joints compensate for the height difference between the rear axle and the transmission as they transfer power for smooth, uninterrupted movement. If the u-joint's bearing components aren't properly lubricated, you'll hear a squeaking sound as the metal parts make contact. The parts will start to wear as metal grinds against metal. Eventually, as the parts wear, you'll hear a clunk when shifting into reverse, because the worn bearings have excess clearance. If you're feeling a constant vibration while driving, this could mean that the u-joint is worn so badly that the drive shaft is imbalanced and moving outside of its correct path of rotation. 4WheelParts.com has the replacement u-joint you need for your vehicle.
