Your vehicle driveline consists of all those parts under your floorboard that connect the engine to the wheels. The driveline includes the driveshaft, center bearings, and the axle. If you own a four-wheel drive, then you have an added axle which connects to the differential. Those parts connect all together with one or more universal joints.
The Universal Joints
The Universal or U-Joints, simple but amazing pieces of equipment, allow the connection of the drivetrain from the engine to the wheels. If you have ever looked under your car, you will see the drivetrain is not in a straight line. U-Joints join the hodge-podge of parts with the other parts in the driveline. U-joints take incredible forces and work flawlessly. However, they break with little or no warning.
When to Get Driveline Service
A vibration in your vehicle when you accelerate could be a sign that your center bearing is not working right. If you hear an under-the-floorboard clunk, you probably need your U-Joints replaced. No matter what the sound or feel, don’t ignore the problem.
