Axles

By Gal Aharon

Cars typically have two axles – front drive axles and back drive axles. Each axle attaches to two parallel wheels, transmitting driving torque and maintaining the position of the both sets of wheels relative to the vehicle body.

 

A non-driving axle (in cars with only front or back-wheel drive) will have no shaft, and serves only as a suspension and steering component. It also does not provide driving torque to the wheels.

 

A common symptom of an axle malfunction is losing having the ability to stabilize the car.

 

So… how much do axles cost?

 

The typical price of an axel shaft replacement is between $500-$950, including parts and labor prices.
