The Basics Behind Yoke Replacement Services at Big Rapids Tire

Driveshaft yokes are located on the ends of the driveshaft. In most configurations, one yoke connects to the rear of the vehicle while the other yoke reaches into the transmission. The driveshaft sends power from the transmission and turns the differential, which moves the wheels. These connecting components help transfer your vehicle’s rotational energy from the transmission to the moving wheels. Many driveshafts are designed with a slip yoke at one end and an end yoke at the other end. The slip yoke allows for the length of the driveshaft to change with the motion of the suspension system as it reacts to the forces of the road. At the same time, the u-joints allow for changes in angle between the differential and the transmission. These components are designed to be flexible in order to maintain constant speeds and rotational forces between elements of your vehicle’s axle assembly.

Why Should You Have Yoke Replacement Services Performed at Big Rapids Tire?

Do you know if one of your yokes needs a replacement? There are some indications. For example, clunking noises are often related to a problem with your vehicle’s yokes. Vibrations felt beneath the floorboard of your vehicle may also be a signal of a damaged yoke. In some cases there may be too much free play or an excessive amount of clearance. Under an excessive amount of stress, a yoke can crack or snap completely. Sometimes, the transmission can twist the yoke. Broken, bent, and twisted yokes should be replaced immediately. If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, contact us today for an inspection of your vehicle’s driveshaft assembly and a possible yoke replacement service.
