Nissan Rear Axle Replacement Service

Four Indications You Need a Rear Axle Replacement

In most modern vehicles, the rear axle is the one to which power is transmitted from the engine in order to propel the vehicle forward. That means there is a wide array of telltale signs and symptoms. These include:

  • Wheel Vibration
    If the steering wheel vibrates, that is a strong indicator of possible rear axle trouble. In most cases, this could also mean a number of other problems are present, problems that that only a professional technician can diagnose and repair.
  • Strange Noises
    The rear axle should always be perfectly straight and strong. If it is even slightly warped, it will move in directions that should not, it will make noise, and it will cause vibrations. You may hear a loud squeaking noise, a heavy growl, or a clicking sound at low speeds. These sounds can be hard to diagnose, which is a strong indication that you need to have your vehicle inspected as soon as possible.
  • Problems Steering
    If your car or truck does not handle right in turns, it might be a problem with the steering, struts, the differential, or it could be a bent or broken drive axle. It can be a big job to figure out what the real problem is, and it's almost always best to let the professionals diagnose the problem.
  • Drive-Axle Movement
    This is a problem that a well-equipped owner can sometimes diagnose themselves. Start by jacking up the vehicle securely, and try to move the axle in different directions. If it shows any give in any direction, you probably need a new axle. Once again, it is usually better and safer to leave this job to the professionals.
