Jeff provided me with great service. He arrived on-time (actually he was early, which was even better). He listened to my complaint and quickly went about assessing the situation. After a thorough inspection/diagnosis he explained what the problem was and offered a solution. He made several suggestions for future work that I need to keep an eye on. His written/recorded report was comprehensive and professional. He took the time to answer all of my questions and made several helpful comments regarding my concerns. Overall, I was very pleased with Jeff's knowledge and professionalism. Whenever I need a mechanic in the future, I will most likely call on him. A Satisfied Customer, RJH (Bob)

All about Axle/CV Shaft Assembly Replacement

Axle shafts are commonly referred to as “CV axles” or “half-shafts.” An axle shaft is a narrow, pole-like part that connects a wheel to the gears in the transmission. Axles are part of the system that enables the wheels to rotate. One end of the axle shaft is connected to the transmission and the other end is connected to the wheel. The transmission rotates the axle shafts, which rotates the wheels. Without the axles, the tires will not rotate and the car will not move. Axle shafts are comprised of four components: shaft, CV joints, grease and the boots (grease container). The most common reason for the axle to fail is because of the torn boots (grease leaking out). Without the grease, the CV joints will not get lubricated, dirt will enter the joint and the whole axle will eventually wear out.
