DRIVESHAFTS | CV JOINTS | CV BOOTS | MOTORSPORT
Driveshafts transfer the power from the engine and gearbox to the wheels. A failure anywhere on a driveshaft will cause a vehicle to break down, as well as compromise safety through the loss of beneficial effects of engine braking.
To prevent expensive repairs and break downs, regular services are recommended. Regular check-ups and servicing every 40 000km to 60 000km will extend the life of the components and prevent unnecessary break downs. It is also important to make use of specialists when servicing or replacing driveshafts, constant velocity joints or boots as incorrect fitment or incorrect parts can cause wear and / or breakdowns.
We also supply and fit special lightweight material hollow bar shafts and high speed CV joints for use in motorsport.
SUSPENSION | STEERING RACKS | BRAKES
We offer a suspension check as a free service to all our customers.
If you are suffering handling problems or bad tracking, or your car feels like it is ‘leaning’ or not responding well, then you may have a suspension problem. The most common problem is that of the bushes wearing out causing unwanted movement leading to terrible noise. It is important to have these checked regularly for any signs of damage or degradation through wear and tear as damaged suspension can cause damage to other parts such as the driveshafts.
If your vehicle’s steering is feeling loose or soft, or you’re experiencing excess play or the steering wheel is rolling from side to side, then you may well have a steering rack problem. We can check this and advise you accordingly.
It is also important to check brakes for wear and tear and have it replaced when necessary.
