Differentials & Final Drives
Whether you’re driving a small personal vehicle like a KIA, a big rig like a tractor-trailer, box truck, or cargo van, or anything in between like an SUV, pickup truck, or motorhome, Southwest Truck and RV in Prescott Valley, Arizona is the place to go for vehicle differentials and final drives.
At Southwest Truck and RV, in Prescott Valley, Arizona, we know all about the different gear ratios within the differential, and our team of expert light, medium, and heavy-duty mechanics knows how to set up gear ratios in the differential, transaxles, and rear ends to provide peak performance such as greater torque and increased efficiency.
Differentials perform several functions. For example, when you make a turn, the outer wheels of your car or truck have further to travel to complete the turn than the inside wheels. The differential allows each wheel to turn independently without causing damage or binding. Imagine this: a marching band is making a turn together; the individuals on the inside turn march in place while those on the outside are taking longer strides. Getting your wheels to accomplish this same task is the function of your differential, no matter its shape or size. You can imagine the complex inner workings of your differential, transaxle, and rear end it takes to make this happen. Southwest Truck and RV knows differential repair and replacement. We know how to maintain differentials, transaxles, and rear ends to keep them running at peak performance for your needs.
How do you know if your differential, transaxle, or rear end needs service or repair?
- whining noises,
- strange vibrations
- unusual binding on sharp turns
When you bring your vehicle into Southwest Truck and RV, we will first check the fluid level in your differential. Did you know that your differential should be inspected every time you have an oil change service performed?
By properly maintaining your fluid level, your differential, transaxle, and rear end should last a long time. By catching an issue with your differential, transaxle, or rear end early, you can save a pile of money. Many repairs are performed quickly and inexpensively when they are caught early.
