Does it seem like the “ride” of your vehicle is getting worse faster than it should. You may wonder if your car shocks are going bad or if the car axles are bad. Are you wondering do bad axles affect shocks? Some drivers may not associate bad axles with the condition of their car shocks.

Just what is the purpose of car axles? Axles are the rods that transfer power from the transmission to the wheels. Axles also serve to bear the weight of the entire vehicle plus its passengers and cargo.

It is important to be aware of the critical function of drive axles and have them inspected regularly. Though perhaps not as commonly understood, axles are as important to a properly functioning vehicle and vehicle safety as are the engine, steering system, brakes, and tires.

It is time for professionals to check your vehicle if you encounter any one or more of the following indicators of axle damage.

  1. Excessive vibrations: Excessive vibrating may be accompanied by an unusual rumbling noise underneath the vehicle, strange tire wobbling, or sluggish driving and steering. This will cause other issues with car shocks, handling, comfort, and safety.
  2. Loud Clanking or Clunking: If you hear unusually loud clanking or clunking as you change gears, or if your vehicle lacks power as you start driving, there may be axle-joint damage. This type of noise is an indicator that the transmission is unable to transfer power adequately to the wheels due to slack in the joints, or a transmission failure
  3. Leaking Grease: This can mean a leaking axle boot or CV boot, which is the rubber cover over the drive axle joint or CV joint. Dirt can enter a joint through a broken joint cover and cause failure to the axle joint and/or axle.
  4. Running in Place: If your vehicle runs, but can’t move forward even though it starts fine, goes into gear, and has a normal engine sound, it likely has a broken axle.

You don’t have to put up with these issues any longer than it takes to get your vehicle to an auto repair shop so that it can be repaired by a reputable technician.
