What method do we use for repairing an axle?
The first step we take in repairing an axle is to remove all axle components. This is to allow easy access to clean the axle and also the components. It also allows us to inspect the axle thoroughly and expose the bare housing. Following that, we remove the ring gears, axle shafts and also the bearing sets from the axle. We then put the axle on our lathe. Our experts will then use the lathe to straighten the axle. We also restore the axle to factory specifications with that lathe and avoid future issues. The next step is to replace any damaged axle spindle ends. Our spindle end replacements are manufactured in-house and are unable to be bought separately. Following that, the axle is painted, reassembled and then filled with fluids.
Rebuilding Axle Assemblies – What is our method?
Our experts will first take the axle to disassemble it. We then inspect all the components and also expose the bare housing. Following that, our experts take all parts of the axle to get thoroughly cleaned. We then replace the ring and pinion sets with high-quality OEM replacements. Following that, we then replace the bearings on the axle. We use Timken bearings in our axle rebuilds because they are trusted. They are also in the industry standard in the bearing industry.
Then, we replace the seals on the axles. Following that we replace the axle shafts with a refurbished axle shaft that has been thoroughly inspected and repaired. If needed we can also use a new axle shaft. We will then replace the brake pads. To do this, we check if the rotors are bolted behind the hub. Then we replace the rotor, making sure that the brake pads are properly applied. We then take the axle to be painted, reassembled and then fill it with fluids.
