Is That Shaking a Driveshaft Issue?

driveshaft

Whatever type of truck you run in your fleet, they all have a driveshaft that connects the transmission to the differential, transferring power to the wheels. At Palm Beach Performance in West Palm Beach, FL, we specialize in diesel truck and fleet vehicle maintenance and repair, including precision driveshaft care.

Driveshafts are extremely important components, relying heavily on tight tolerances and precise balancing to keep your trucks running smoothly. Fleet trucks see a lot of hard work 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 performance of the driveshaft.

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 issues. A slightly out of balance driveshaft can cause the entire truck to shake and shudder as it travels down the road, sometimes making the truck feel undrivable. 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 balanced properly, turning a simple issue into an expensive and time-consuming ordeal.

If you’ve noticed symptoms of a driveshaft malfunction, and for any of your other diesel and fleet truck repair and maintenance needs, our expert technicians have you covered. For the best fleet truck service repair shop in West Palm Beach, FL, call or stop by Palm Beach Performance today.
