ABS, Brakes, U-Joints & Driveline Repairs

Importance of Proper ABS Functionality

Newer trucks and semi-trailers are equipped with an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS). This safety system is responsible for controlling and monitoring the wheel speed when the brakes are applied. The purpose of the ABS is to ensure that the wheels remain connected to the ground during the application of the brakes.

  • The system also reduces the risk of uncontrolled wheel slip-off and lock-off.

  • Without the anti-lock braking system (ABS), the truck can spin out of control as the wheels stop turning or slip on the road.

  • Heavy-duty trucks are prone to overturning and sometimes result in fatal accidents when their braking systems malfunction.

It is essential for drivers to inspect their ABS on a regular basis to guarantee that they are functioning correctly. It is especially important for truck drivers to be aware of the warning signals that are sent to the dashboard, particularly when hauling heavy loads. If a driver has been driving a heavy-duty vehicle for an extended period of time without hearing any pulse or chattering sounds from the ABS, they should have their ABS checked.

U-Joint Repairs In Lamar Missouri

U-Joints In Action

The U-joins enable the rear axle to move up and down in order to take advantage of the transmission's power, which is fixed in-place. As with all automotive components, U-joins are subject to wear and tear.

The U-joint design allows flexing of the driveline while providing power. The majority of driveshafts feature a U-joint at both ends of the driveshaft. This allows for flex near the transmission (or transfer case) and near the differential. When the vehicle is in motion, the U-joint flexes continuously when the rear axle is moving up and down.
