Constant-velocity joints play an extremely important role in keeping your car in motion. As part of the drive shaft, they transmit power from the transmission to the drive wheels so that your car moves when, and how you want it to. These variable angle joints are constantly adjusting to ensure that this essential power makes it to the wheels regardless of their position – whether pointed straight or turning to the left or right. CV joints also allow for the up-and-down movement of the suspension system, keeping the torque that flows from the transmission to the wheels constant.
When and Why Do I Need Constant-Velocity Joint Service?

There are several warning signs that your CV joints may need service:

- cracks in the rubber covering the CV joint
- vibration when accelerating
