Chevrolet Equinox Driveshaft & U Joints
About Driveshaft & U Joints
In a typical front-engine rear-wheel-drive setup, the power from the engine is transmitted from the gearbox to the rear end using a propeller shaft or driveshaft. These propellor shafts consist of a universal joint or U-joint that helps transmit the power at different angles. The propellor shaft connects to the differential and transmits power to the wheels with the help of drive axles. Universal joints are mechanical joints and are generally found on driveshafts on rear-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive vehicles and on the front axle shafts of some vehicles.
Driveshafts and U-joints are used to transfer engine torque to the drive axles. The U-joints allow driveshafts to move vertically with the suspension while maintaining power. Some driveshafts also have a slip joint that allows the shaft to move longitudinally to maintain effective contact between the two connection points. Such shafts are known as telescopic driveshafts. U-joints and slip joints function to minimize wear and tear on your vehicle’s gearboxes and drivetrain components. The U-joints play an important role as they allow the torque to be transmitted at different angles of the connecting shafts. This joint compensates for the misalignment between the shafts in any direction. U-joints are used when the alignment between the two connecting shafts is 30 degrees or fewer and works best when there is minimal angular change. They provide a connection point and permit smooth delivery of torque.
