Shop Jeep Liberty Replacement Driveshaft
The driveshaft on a Jeep Liberty, also known as a CV Drive Axle, transmits engine power to the vehicle's wheels. This cleverly designed driveshaft does the job by guiding torque and rotation through a variable angle that connects the transmission-transfer case-differentials to the driving wheels. It may be difficult to identify if a drive shaft is on the verge of creating real problems. The Jeep, like most other vehicles, has to be driven under load in order to diagnose a drive shaft. The task isn't made any easier because the intrusion of a muffler shield, or an exhaust system that sprawls across the whole area, can make it difficult to find any problem. Vibration problems on your Jeep Liberty could be the first warning that something is wrong. Let a reputable car repair shop examine the Jeep. Then let PartsGeek.com provide whatever it takes to restore driveshaft health.
