Here at Excel Auto Repair and Tire Service, we know that car axles play an extremely important role in performance, and we’re sure you do also. But were you aware that even slightly damaged car axles can be having an effect you are not aware of? Not only can it slightly affect performance, a damaged axle can also play a key role in the wear and tear of automotive shock or automotive strut parts with as the tire, other suspension components and even the transmission.

Car axles are the key to a smoothly functioning suspension system. They connect to the wheels and bear most of the weight of your entire vehicle.

Given the opportunity for failure, they not only adversely affect your vehicle’s performance, a failing car axles can reduce the life cycle of all these components.
Today’s car axles are far more complex than a simple rod between two wheels. Often they are split into two halves and contain a complexity of components that takes an experienced mechanic such as the technicians here at Excel Auto and Tire Service.
