Driveshafts are the unsung heroes of your car, acting as the bridge between the engine and the wheels, ensuring that power gets delivered where it’s needed most.
A typical driveshaft, sometimes referred to as a propeller shaft, Cardan shaft, or tailshaft, is designed with a number of components like a tube, flanges, a center bearing, universal joints, and both slip and end yokes. Together, these components harmoniously rotate at high speeds to power the differential and the wheels.
