Intermediate shafts, often referred to as “stub shafts” or “inner shafts,” represent a significant service opportunity for your shop. Intermediate shafts act as the link that couples the CV axle to the transaxle or differential. The shaft connects the CV axle to the transmission and ensures that the left and right CV axles are of equal lengths. The equal joint angles between the left and right CV axles reduce torque steer and improve vehicle handling. Many car and SUVs use intermediate shafts and in this video we discuss the why they fail and the symptoms. This video is sponsored by TrakMotive.
