We carry thousands of Universal Joints in stock for many propshaft applications and can normally repair or replace universal joints within 24 to 48 hours
Universal Joints (UJ’s) tend to be the weakest point in any propshaft so it’s likely that at some point they will require repair or replacement. However, if a Universal Joint is greased regularly, it can prevent it from becoming dry as grease evaporates or is lost. The lack of lubrication can cause friction between the universal joint bearing and the propshaft; the bearing within each universal joint twists a small amount with each rotation of the propshaft.
This friction will initially manifest itself in a squeak, which is unlikely to be heard. If unattended, this squeak will then develop into a vibration that means the universal joint bearings are so worn that they allow the propshaft to move outside its normal rotational path. Once this vibration occurs, it can cause damage to the whole propshaft. The vehicle should be assessed by a professional garage, and the universal joint will need to be replaced if it is found to be badly worn.
If you think you have an issue with a vibration on your vehicle, you can bring your vehicle to us, we will have it assessed by a local garage, and repair the propshaft if the UJ’s have failed.
We carry thousands of Universal Joints in stock for many propshaft applications and can normally repair or replace universal joints within 24 to 48 hours of receipt of the propshaft. We can also arrange for courier collection and return of the shaft too.
