Driveshaft SupportThe driveshaft is a component found on rear-wheel drive vehicles. Rear-wheel drive vehicles provide power to the back set of wheels and use the front set of wheels for steering. However, most cars have the engine in the front, so the rotational energy of the motor has to be transmitted to the rear wheels along the axis of the car. The driveshaft is a piece of metal hollowed into a long tube, attached to the transmission on one end and to the rear differential at the back end of the car or truck. The engine turns the driveshaft, and the driveshaft in turn powers the rear differential which turns the rear wheels, providing motive power. Some larger vehicles require a two-piece driveshaft. These vehicles contain a driveshaft support located towards the middle of the vehicle. The driveshaft support has a bearing which transmits the force from the front driveshaft to the rear driveshaft. This carrier bearing can wear out over time, reducing efficiency in the driveshaft or causing a complete transmission breakdown. When this occurs, the driveshaft is usually intact but the driveshaft support requires rebuilding or replacement. Removing and replacing a driveshaft support is not a job for the casual mechanic, but it is not outside the competence of someone with a lot of automotive experience. However, the driveshaft support itself requires a machine shop to rebuild, and since it is a critical component it is probably best to leave this reconstruction to a professional.

What is a driveshaft support?

Driveshaft supports are crucial components in the driveshaft assembly of a rear or all wheel drive vehicle. The driveshaft itself is the machinery responsible for getting the power produced by the engine from the front of the car to the rear axle.

The driveshaft assembly is a complex set of carefully fitted parts that require precision balance. In autos with rear wheel drive this assembly includes two separate sections, which are connected in the center by a driveshaft support.

Driveshaft supports are U-shaped metal and plastic brackets that are used to house the center bearing. Made of machined solid rubber, this bearing helps to fix the driveshaft assembly solidly in place.

This ensures that power is transferred efficiently, and helps to prevent harmonic vibrations as the vehicle accelerates or slows down.

How much do driveshaft supports cost?

The price of a new driveshaft support will depend on the make and model of your car, as well as the material and design quality of the equipment. Most of the supports available on fall within the range of about $20 to $250.

Since it is essential that you use the part recommended by the manufacturer, make sure that you find the right piece for your specific vehicle.

What can go wrong with the driveshaft support?

The purpose and function of the driveshaft support is straightforward. It braces the auto's drive shaft apparatus, assisting with the transference of power from the transmission to the rear wheels. However, even though it's a simple part, when it starts to fail it can lead to serious drivability issues.

Symptoms of a poorly working support include clunking sounds or shuddering from beneath the floorboard, particularly when speeding up, slowing down, braking or changing gears. This is because it is at these times that the driveshaft assembly is doing its hardest work.

Either of the above signs could be the symptom of a worn out bearing or broken support bracket that is no longer holding the two section of the driveshaft firmly together.

Luckily it is fairly straightforward to actually inspect the driveshaft support. You will find this piece on the underside of the vehicle: a U-shaped bracket located at the linking center point that connects the forward and rear sections of the driveshaft. 

This is the support that houses the center bearing. If you don't see any signs of outward damage to the support, check the shafts themselves to see that they are firmly secured. If either shaft seems ""wobbly"", you will definitely have to disassemble the driveshaft apparatus to check the bearing, and will likely have to replace the part.

If there isn't any sign that the sections of the driveshaft are compromised, there may be another problem with the drivetrain.

Replacement tips?

You should always replace a faulty driveshaft support with the manufacturer recommended part, and you should replace the entire support, including the outer bracket and housing and the rubber bearing itself. While it's possible to just replace a bearing, it's probably not a good idea unless you are an experienced mechanic.
