Axle and Drive Shaft Repair and Replacement

AAMCO Des Moines, IA's trained professionals are experts in maintenance, repair or replacement of your vehicle's axles and differentials.

Power from the engine and transmission are transferred to the wheels and tires through your drive shaft's, axles, CV-joints, U-joints, transfer cases, differentials and wheel hubs. These parts are generally strong enough to last a very long time but if you hear clunking, whining, a squeaking noise or feel a vibration, it may indicate a problem.

To avoid serious damage or failure, have your vehicle checked by AAMCO Des Moines, IA's trained professionals. Our center can provide all of your vehicle's service needs specified in the owner's manual. Our skilled technicians perform a wide range of services, making AAMCO Des Moines, IA your one-stop shop for all of your vehicle's repairs and maintenance.


Axles & Differentials

An axle connects the two wheels on opposite sides of the vehicle. The differential is gears and bearings either inside the transmission or the housing of the axle.


Maintenance and Care:

The differential lube level should be checked with every oil change. Some differentials require periodic cleaning and repacking of wheel bearings. If you drive an SUV or light truck, and especially if you pull a boat (meaning these components may get submerged in water), axle lube should be changed every year. Please refer to your owner's manual for factory recommended maintenance intervals for your specific vehicle.
AAMCO Des Moines, IA technicians are experts in axles and differentials. Differential problems should be checked out as soon as possible. Symptoms include clunking when you accelerate or shift between drive and reverse, or a high-pitched howling type of noise.
