About Our Axle Repair Services for Trucks & Fleets

Maintaining your axles is a matter of completing the following tasks. First, your gear oil must be changed out on a regular basis. Since your axles and differential gears share the same gear oil, they’re changed via your differential plate. Secondly, all bearings must be inspected for wear and replaced if necessary. Thirdly, your axle seals must be inspected for leaks on a regular basis. Doing this will ensure your axle shafts are adequately lubricated at all times. Although inspections must happen on a frequent basis, the gear oil change is only necessary once every 30 to 60 thousand miles. 

Additional Axle Maintenance Service Information

There’s a wide array of parts in your axle housing that can break and need repair or replacement. One such component is the axle shaft itself. If your axle shaft is overloaded, poorly lubricated, or gets bound up in your housing, it may snap or warp. If this happens, you’ll need to get it replaced. Another component that commonly needs to be replaced is your wheel bearings. Bearings allow for your axle to spin without creating friction. Unfortunately, these bearings don’t last forever. If one wears down and breaks, you’ll notice that your wheel hub heats up and may even start to smoke. Your wheel may also move back and forth or side to side.
