The factory driveshaft in your vehicle converts mechanical power, torque, and rotation into the motion you need. When you put your car or SUV into gear, the driveshaft – also known as a drivetrain – transfers that energy to the various parts involved in getting you moving. There are four types of drivetrains: rear-wheel drive, front-wheel drive, four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. Rear-wheel drive features a long driveshaft that connects your transmission to your rear differential. All-wheel and four-wheel drive systems have two driveshafts. One is the same as seen in rear-wheel drive, while the other connects to your front differential and a transfer case. Front-wheel drive puts all the drivetrain components up front.
Warning Signs of a Failing Driveshaft
Even the top-quality original driveshaft installed in your vehicle can begin to break down. If you feel intense vibrations coming from under your vehicle, have trouble turning, or your vehicle shudders when you speed up, your driveshaft components may need repair. The same is true if you should hear a loud clunking noise when you change gears, or a clicking sound as you turn. Driving with a damaged or defective driveshaft can be quite dangerous. Don't risk your safety, along with that of others on the road. Replace your failing driveshaft with the one that's designed for your model. That's a genuine Mopar driveshaft.
