By taking the torque from your truck’s transmission and putting it to your axles, the drive shaft allows your rig to turn the wheels to get you down the road. However, failure to maintain the driveline can lead to dangerous driving conditions, pieces flying off, and significant damage to your truck.
Preventative Measures to Reduce Dangerous Damages
- Measure end play and make sure the joints aren’t loose
- Frequently check for dirt and debris buildup
- Lubricate the driveline after every 12,000 miles
- Don’t skip preventative maintenance or put off repairs till the last minute.
Signs Your Driveline Needs Repairs
- Strange clanking, squeaking, or grinding noises
- Rusty U-joint
- Dented, cracked, or twisted driveshaft
