Signs You Need A New Axle
There’s no set date when your axles will need to be replaced. Many axles will last the life of your car; however, they undergo wear and tear every time your car is moving. The more you drive, the more stress and strain is put on your axles. When they begin to wear down, they can pose a serious safety hazard to you and other drivers. There are a few signs to watch out for that may indicate that your axles are worn and need replacement. You may confuse these as problems with your suspension or alignment as they have similar symptoms. If you notice these problems, see a mechanic right away to avoid serious damage to your vehicle.
Clicking Sound When Turning
As the axle wears, its joints will loosen and produce a loud clicking noise when you make a turn. This is one of the most common and easily recognizable symptoms of a damaged axle.
Unusual Vibration While Driving
Sometimes an axle can sustain damage that throws off the balance of the shaft, causing vibrations when driving. This can make it difficult to steer and handle and will call for a new axle to replace the damaged one.
Grease On Tires
The joints of the axle are lubricated with grease to allow them to move well in varying conditions. These greased joints are covered and protected by a boot, which can come loose, leaking grease onto your tires and driveway.
