Whether you drive a Chevy, Ford, or Dodge diesel, your truck has a driveshaft that connects the transmission to the differential, transferring power to the wheels. At Diesel Pickup Specialists, Inc in Inman, we know that a driveshaft does a lot more than simply transmit power; your trucks ride quality and reliability also depend on it.
Trucks see a lot of hard work, on and off-road terrain, and wear and tear. As a result, truck driveshafts are particularly prone to issues. While driveshafts can break altogether, typically they don’t. Issues more commonly arise in the form of balance or stability problems; unbalanced or bent driveshafts, failing u-joints, and bad carrier bearings all affect the driveshaft’s performance.
If your driveshaft is clunking when you shift into gear or press the accelerator, or shaking at certain speeds, you likely have one or more driveshaft related issue. A slightly out of balance driveshaft can cause the entire truck to shake, ruining your ride quality. But ride quality isn’t the only thing that suffers. U-joints, bearings, transmission components, and differential components also wear exponentially faster if the driveshaft isn’t balance properly, turning a simple solution into an expensive and time-consuming ordeal.
If you’ve noticed symptoms of a driveshaft malfunction, and for any of your other diesel truck repair and maintenance needs, our expert technicians have you covered. For the best truck service repair shop in Inman, call or stop by Diesel Pickup Specialists, Inc today.
