Drive Shafts | The Importance of the Drive Shafts

Drive shafts are found in any car that is propelled by a car engine. In order to propel a car forward, the wheels must be in contact with the ground. When a wheel has been in contact with the ground for a certain amount of time, it rotates with extreme force.

Such friction with the ground, which occurs in a particular place can have an adverse effect on the performance of the car engine. For this reason, the wear and tear on the drive shafts are minimized. The drive shafts play a major role in ensuring the smooth and flowing movement of the wheels when you engage them.


There are three major parts of the drive shafts, namely, the front hub, back hub and the flywheel. The front hub is the part which contains the bearing mounted on it. When the shaft is properly aligned and the bearing remains in a stable position, it will then drive the wheels. The bearings are also called as the drive hub.


To understand the importance of the front hub, let us take a look at the mechanism by which it functions. The driver aligns the hub and the bearings on the front of the car. The front hub is fitted with the drive shaft, which is then driven by the driver's foot-operated hydraulic lever.


The axle of the drive shaft is mounted on the front of the car. It is necessary that the driver should be able to operate the lever without any difficulty or stress. The area of the drive shaft's front wheel, which is attached to the axle of the drive shaft, needs to be in a position to provide maximum weight to the car, so as to ensure smooth rotation of the front wheels.


The inner diameter of the drive shaft is greater than that of the main axle. So, it is important that the inner diameter of the drive shaft is greater than the diameter of the main axle. The inner diameter of the drive shaft is therefore referred to as the hub-diameter.


This is because the bearing is seated in the hub and the main axle. The axle will move outwards when the wheel of the main axle is in contact with the ground. Therefore, the weight of the bearing is prevented from moving outwards.

Drive shafts of a car is a vital part of the transmission system. They are mounted inside the hubs. In the case of a car with a manual transmission, the bearings may be fitted on the outside of the wheel. When these bearings are worn out, they cannot function properly.


A car needs to have an equal balance between the cars and their tires. This balance is achieved when the tires of the car are properly matched with the weight of the car. The weight of the tires determines the overall weight of the car.

The drive shafts need to be balanced properly. All parts of the car must also be balanced as well. Otherwise, the balance of the entire car may become affected and the car may not move as smoothly as it should.


There are many ways of balancing the balance of the car. One of the methods is the rolling of the car off of the scales. This is referred to as the balancing of the balance of the car.


By rolling the car over the scales, it is possible to measure the weight of the car. This method is much faster than the process of balancing the balance of the car. However, the weighing and balancing of the car can only be carried out when the wheels are in a position to move.


We have first-class production line and strict management system.
