Axle repair services in Cedar Rapids

Axle repair services are specialized repair services that can often be difficult to find from your local repair shop. Our expert team at Houston Rebuilt Axles has over 75 years of collective experience in axle repair work. We also have the equipment to provide this specialized service. In order to provide this service nationwide, HRA offers convenient door-to-door courier shipping to help expedite the delivery of used or damaged axles across the US, including to vehicle owners in Cedar Rapids.

The remanufactured axles provided by HRA are rebuilt to OEM specifications and come with a warranty.  HRA can upgrade axles for any purpose including off-road vehicle operators who need an upgraded differential or hotrod drivers who need a narrowed axle.  

How does HRA repair a spindle end or bent axle?

In order for the team at HRA to properly service a bent axle, they first tear down the axle to a bare housing and afterwards apply a lathe to the component.  Our experts will straighten the tubes if they are bent. While on the lathe, the damaged spindle end is cut off. A new replacement spindle end built in-house is welded on to the component, completing the repair process.

What is a repaired axle assembly?

There is a lot of work involved that goes into getting a rear axle repaired for use on the road again.  The ring & pinion, bearing set, axle shafts, and rotors are removed from the rear end leaving a bare housing.  Following that, the team at HRA applies on a lathe and either uses a used OEM ring and pinion set that meets factory specifications or a new set if it is not available. The axle will then be cleaned, followed by checking up on the existing bearing and axle shafts.  Finally, the axle is reassembled, painted, filled with fluid, and ready to be installed.
