Axles are essential components of your heavy-duty truck. The axle is a rod or shaft that rotates the wheels and supports the vehicle’s weight. Every truck needs axles in order to operate properly because the axles conduct the power that causes the wheels to turn. There are many things that can strain your truck’s axle, such as clocking many miles, dealing with potholes and poor road conditions, covering uneven surfaces, and hauling heavy loads. Your axle should be monitored for misalignment and straightened from time to time in order to ensure that your truck is operating as efficiently as possible. At Schroeder Truck Repair, you can rely on our certified technicians to maintain your truck’s axle so that you can enjoy a smoother ride and your vehicle will have a longer lifespan.
How can you tell if your truck’s axle is damaged or misaligned?
There are quite a few signs that your truck’s axle is broken or misaligned. Some of these cues can be small and easy to miss or ignore, but if you are able to identify them early you can get your truck in for service and prevent more costly breakdowns.
Common symptoms you might experience when your axle components have been damaged:
- Wobbly wheels
- Steering less responsive and not level while driving
- The steering wheel is slow to return to center after making a turn
- Vibrations in your wheel that increase at higher speeds
- Pulling to the left or right while driving
