Understanding Axle Housings
Although axle shafts are individual components, axle housings are entire assemblies that house gears, axle shafts, and gear oil, as well as provide support for your suspension links. Although your axle housings are incredibly durable, they need to be maintained on a regular basis and repaired when necessary. The most important service that must be performed at least once every 30 to 60 thousand miles is gear oil changes. Within your axle housing, your differential gearing and axle shafts are constantly moving. This movement creates friction, which must be mitigated. This is where your gear oil comes in. Gear oil is an important lubricant that eradicates friction and keeps the operating temperature of your components low.
The Importance of Routine Inspection
Routinely inspecting your axle housings is of the utmost importance. Routine inspection will ensure you catch any minor issues before they become of critical concern. For example, you may notice a minor gear oil leak coming from your differential plate. This particular issue isn’t a big deal if it’s caught early, but if left unchecked, can have catastrophic results. Low gear oil can cause your entire differential to bind up and fail.
