For many drivers who take advantage of the open wilds outside of Mesa, Differential repairs are possibly one of the most demanding repairs that can be conducted for your vehicle. This is true because keeping the differential within factory determined tolerance is the single most important aspect of keeping it healthy. Whether you need front or rear differential repairs we can make sure that your vehicle gets the care it needs to keep rolling.
Because your differential has such an effect on the way you drive, it is extremely important that all differential service be conducted by certified, experienced technician, otherwise you may find your truck handling in a very odd, rough, or unpredictable manner.
Understanding a little bit about what your vehicle differential actually does inside your vehicle is key to being able to recognize the signs of failure, and will help you make the right decisions about what kind of maintenance it should undergo. When turning, your wheels must spin at slightly different rates in order to make the turn. Especially in 4 wheel drive vehicles, it is important for your vehicle to make these mechanical calculations fluidly, without sacrificing power or efficiency. This is precisely what your differential is designed to achieve.
In order to understand the signs of a differential problem, it helps to understand the mechanics of what would be occurring if the differential were not present at all. This will help you identify for yourself when a differential repair or service is necessary. Without the differential in your vehicle, one of your wheels would be forced to slip whenever you made a turn. This would cause a great deal of strain on your axle and wear down the bearings well before their time. With this in mind, if you begin to experience difficulty making turns even though your steering wheel spins easily, it could easily be an issue developing with your differential. This kind of issue can especially be felt if your vehicle is a dedicated 4 wheel drive truck, or you regularly tow a load.
