In front-wheel-drive cars, the driveshaft connects the wheels and the gearbox. In rear-wheel-drive cars, the driveshaft connects the differential (diff) and the wheels. A drive shaft consists of a shaft with an inner CV joint on one side and an outer joint on the other side. The grease inside the boot covers the CV joints. We recommend that you service a CV joint every 40 000km traveled, this will increase its lifetime. We at CV & Propshaft Exchange Services will gladly fix all your driveshaft problems with quality products at the right price.
An inner CV joint is mounted on the gearbox or differential of the car. Inner CV joints, when damaged, generally cause a vibration or “clunking” on the car when accelerating or decelerating. Thus, we stock a wide range of inner CV Joints to help you as soon as possible.
An outer CV joint is mounted at the wheel of the car, whether its front or rear-wheel drive is irrelevant. Hence, outer CV joints tend to make a “clicking” noise when turning. We stock a wide range of outer CV Joints to meet your needs.
There is a stainless steel strapping which ties boot to all the CV Joints. There are 2 types of boots namely Rubber boots (most common) and Thermal plastic boots. Thus, replace ruptured boots as soon as possible, which can be as a result of perishing over time or pierced by a sharp object. It is much easier and low-cost to replace boots than to replace a CV Joint. That is why it is crucial for boots to be perfect as it holds the grease which keeps the CV Joints lubricated. At CV & Propshaft Exchange Services we stock a wide range of boots to suit our customer’s needs.
