Your vehicle’s CV (constant-velocity) joints are a critical part of your suspension system, connecting the suspension system to your wheels and transmission components. This enables your vehicle to keep a constant speed when going over bumps, potholes, or other uneven surfaces. As with most components, the CV joints within your vehicle are subject to normal use wear and tear and breakages. It’s imperative that you do not neglect these joints. Routinely having professional inspections done to the vehicle’s suspension system will help you prevent significant issues from happening in the first place.
There are various signs of CV joint wear and tear that you should NOT ignore when operating your vehicle. If you hear any popping or clicking when turning your steering wheel, experience side-to-side shaking, or unusual clunking noises when switching to reverse, give us a call immediately. These are basic signs that your CV joints are not up to speed and potentially dangerous.
