Our Axle Repair and Rebuild Process

First, our experts will determine which option would be best suited for your axle. The amount of damage the axle has determines whether to repair or rebuild the axle. Moderately to also mild damage will only require a repair to be done. Any damage higher than that is then a rebuild may be necessary. Repairing an axle is less expensive than rebuilding, but rebuilding is more involved and more components are replaced.

The rebuilding and repairing process share some processes. The first shared step is removing the components on the axle and cleaning them. Then the axle is put on the lathe to be restored back to factory specifications. Following that, we will inspect the axle seals and bearings and other components to repair or replace them. Our built in-house spindle ends are used to replace any damaged spindle ends on the axle. Finally, the axle is then painted, assembled and filled with fluids.

For rebuild axles, the ring and pinion set is replaced with a high-quality OEM replacement. Also, we trust Timken’s bearing and seals in our axle rebuilds. The axle carriers will have their seals replaced with Timken replacements. For any damaged axle shafts, they will be replaced with axle shafts that have been refurbished. These axle shafts have been thoroughly inspected and restored to factory specifications. We can use a new axle shaft. Should the rotor on the rear end be bolted behind the hub, then the rotor will be replaced or turned. This will make sure the brake pad is properly applied.

How would you know if you have a damaged axle?

Damage to an axle can come from many different sources. The damage could have come from hitting a curb to driving over a rough road while hauling a large amount of weight. Should the axle get damaged, the axle may exhibit one or more of these symptoms:

  • Noise – If the axle bends, the gears on the axle can come out of alignment. The gears will make a noticeable grinding noise as they spin together.
  • Leaks – Cracks can form in an axle and cause leaks from any damage. This can cause the lubricant to leak from the axle and the axle may not have enough lubricant.
  • Vibrations – While you drive your car will shake and vibrate if your axle is damaged. The vibration can be felt through the steering wheel as well while you turn the wheel.
