We Repair CV Joints and Drive Axles in San Diego

At Dualtone of San Diego, our goal is to help keep your foreign or domestic auto or pickup in factory condition for as long as you own it. Any sort of daily driving puts stress on a vehicle. Axles are designed for different needs, but in general they stabilize a vehicle under conditions of speed and weight. Over time, parts may need attention. If an inspection shows a weakness in the system, it may be time for a CV axle replacement. Dualtone services all types of vehicles, including:

  • Rear-wheel drive (RWD)
  • Four-wheel drive (4WD)
  • Front-wheel drive (FWD)

How They Work

An axle shaft is a narrow piece, like a pole, that connects a wheel to the gears in the transmission of your car or truck. In most FWD cars, the drive axle is split between two half axles, with differential and universal joints, or u-joints, in between. The constant velocity (CV) joint is a third piece that allows the wheels to move freely. This joint enables the shaft to rotate, transmitting power at a constant speed without causing an excess of friction and heat. When a boot, or grease container, leaks and the cv joint fails to be properly lubricated, it may eventually wear out and require a shaft assembly replacement.
