Differential Service and Repair in Bossier City, LA

As you turn a corner in your vehicle, the outside wheels are going to have farther to go than the inside wheels. This means that to keep everything uniform, your outside wheels are going to have to turn quicker than what the inside ones are. To make this possible, your vehicle has to use a differential. The differential is what lets your wheels rotate at varying speeds when turning without having to worry about any hopping or binding. For those who have a rear-wheel drive car, the rear axle has the differential. If you have ever been behind a truck and seen the large bulge smack in the middle of the axle, you were looking at the differential.

An all-wheel drive vehicle has a differential on both of the axles. They also have a transfer case that sits between the two axles to compensate for differences in speed between the axles. The trans-axle handles the differential functions in a front-wheel drive.

With so much going on in these components, it makes sense that you are going to end up needing differential service and repair in Bossier City or Shreveport at some point in time or another. Even though these components were built to last, you still need to have your vehicle inspected on a regular basis to check for possible leaks or worn-out components.
