Differential and Axle Service

Differential & Axle Service in Steger, New Lenox, and Schererville

While your vehicle’s engine creates the power needed to drive, and the transmission ensures the proper use of that power, the differential and axles are what deliver that power to the wheels. These components live a rough life, enduring the brunt of power transfer as well as harsh road conditions throughout the year.

Maintaining your differential involves regular fluid changes to keep the moving internals of the unit properly lubricated. Axles, which on most modern cars utilize rubber boots to protect rotating components, need to be replaced periodically throughout the time you own your vehicle.

Symptoms of a worn or faulty differential can include:

  • Rapid oil consumption
  • Difficulty steerings
  • Grinding or clunking noises 
  • Unprecedented and uneven wear on your tires

If you’re experiencing any of the above symptoms, it’s important to bring your vehicle to a trusted professional and have your differential inspected as soon as you can.
