    Understanding U-Joints

    Universal joints, or u-joints, are flexible couplings that play a vital role in your vehicle. They transmit rotational force between the transmission, driveshaft, and differentials, which turn your vehicle’s drive wheels. A u-joint needs to be flexible enough to handle angle and alignment changes between the driveshaft and differentials.

    U-joints have four legs, or trunnions, extending from a central cross. These legs have bearing caps and sit within the yoke, which pivots and spins as they rotate with the driveshaft. Many original equipment u-joints are sealed, but some aftermarket u-joints are greasable and need periodic lubrication. Knowing the type of u-joints on your vehicle helps you determine the proper maintenance schedule and when to replace them.

    Why Choose GM Specialist for U-Joint Replacement?

    Clicking, squeaking, and grinding noises while driving suggest your u-joints may need replacement. Replacing your u-joint can be cheaper than facing major repairs if you ignore a worn u-joint. Vibrations and rattling noises also indicate a faulty u-joint. Grinding noises mean metal-on-metal contact, which wears out u-joints quickly. U-joints can bend due to the torque and force from the engine. On older vehicles, u-joints can rust, adding resistance and reducing their ability to turn smoothly.

    Routine inspections of your u-joints can prevent costly repairs. Replacing your u-joints at the first sign of trouble helps avoid failure in your vehicle’s driveline. When you need new u-joints, call us for prompt service.
