DriveshaftDrive shafts are one of the most basic suspension components of a vehicle. It is a steel shaft, usually with a universal joint that connects the transmission to the drive wheels. Drive shafts are a mechanical component that transmits both torque and rotation from the engine. Because the shaft carries so much load--the entire force of the drivetrain--it needs to be exceedingly strong though at the same time must not achieve this strength through increased weight of the metal used. In the case of an all wheel drive vehicle driveshafts connect to the transfer case then to your vehicles axle. Drive shaft problems happen more frequently with all wheel drive vehicles especially if driven off road or under hard acceleration.

This would result in too much inertia which would then feed back into the transmission and cause added stresses and wear during changes in speed. The unit is more than a simple shaft, it is a precisely engineered piece of an elaborate system that ensures that the vehicle will go when you want it to go and stop on demand without adding weight or points of potential failure. On occasion you need to get a Driveshaft for safe driving or functional reasons, while at other times it's an item to enjoy; either way, acquire the highest level of quality you're able to manage. When you decided on your car, you had an investment that likely will be with your family for years to come; protect your ride by installing only the best u joints and drivetrain systems and components.

What is a driveshaft?

The driveshaft is a precision engine component that is responsible for transferring rotation and torque from the drive train to other areas of the vehicle. Driveshafts connect the engine to the back wheels of a rear-wheel drive vehicle, and to all wheels in a four-wheel drive vehicle.

Because these components undergo great shear and torsion stress, they must be exceedingly strong. However, they should not be so bulky that the develop their own significant inertia (via weight). Too much inertia can result in force being fed back to the transmission, putting it under extra strain that can lead to premature failure.

While these parts are common in off road and otherwise high performance autos, not all cars are manufactured with them. Certain models use a set of gears instead of a shaft to transfer torque to each wheel.

How much do driveshafts cost?

Most of the driveshafts on PartsGeek.com cost between $200 and $500. Prices will differ depending on what the make and model of your vehicle is, as well as what type of performance you're looking for.

If you have a limited budged, you may want to consider trying to find a remanufactured driveshaft. Higher end parts often have features such as optimized weight reduction, extra torsional stiffness and precision joint design.

How do driveshafts work?

On its own an engine can't make the wheels on your car turn. For instance, in a front-wheel drive vehicle the transmission must somehow transfer power to the rear axle. This is done using a driveshaft which is also known as a ""propeller shaft"". Extending the length of the car, this part connects the engine to the final drive (differential) of the transmission, located on the rear axle. Driveshafts are also used to transfer torque and rotation to the wheels themselves.

What can go wrong with a driveshaft?

Since driveshafts must rotate at extremely high speeds and transfer heavy torque loads, they are especially exposed to the risk of becoming unbalanced or worn down. When this happens it can cause potentially serious issues that affect a vehicle's drivability.

Intense vibrations and unusual noises are two of the most commonly noticed symptoms of an ailing driveshaft. Worn bushings or U-joints can causes excessive vibration of the driveshaft. Not only is this noticeable within the cab, constant shaking can compound the wear on other parts of the drivetrain.

Worn joints can also lead to rattling, scraping or clunking sounds coming from beneath the vehicle. Either of these symptoms are sign that you should examine your drivetrain system as soon as possible. Failure to do so could lead to expensive transmission repairs or replacement later on.

Very Satisfied
Reviewer: tourguide

Great product, and very easy to swap over. The total job took just over an hour and the parts were an exact fit. To be honest I was actually not looking forward to doing this job, but shortly after I started I was done. The only thing I would recommend if your bolts are rounded off I would recommend replacing them with new ones. If the bolt heads are rounded off it does make it hard to get a proper torque. This replacement part did not come with new bolts. Overall a great product!
