We are trying to see how many of you actually still use the yellow pages any more to discover businesses for whatever it is you are in need or interest of, or if most of you have just gone completely digital and use the internet. So how did you discover Advanced Driveshaft?


Did you know you should always have your drive shaft built and installed before your exhaust system? Doing so can prevent exhaust system clearance issues, which can be costly to fix. Incidentally, high horsepower cars and trucks that require a 3-inch exhaust require a strong drive shaft.


If you hear a clicking sound every time you make a sharp turn in your front wheel drive vehicle, chances are, your car's constant velocity or CV joints are shot. As such, you should have them inspected and, if need be, replaced.


Did you know that there's a limit to how fast a driveshaft can spin? At its maximum, the drive shaft is said to have reached critical speed so vibration and ultimately, failure will occur if it is pushed beyond this limit.


Aside from your tires, what other component of a rear-wheel drive vehicle has to be balanced? If you guessed the driveshaft then you're absolutely right. Having an unbalanced driveshaft results in serious vibration that isn't only annoying, but possibly dangerous as well.


To help support the length of a driveshaft, some vehicles make use of a center support bearing or CSB. This CSB is usually encased in rubber so aside from supporting the driveshaft, it also helps absorb any vibration coming from it.


Besides automobiles and farm equipment, other forms of transportation utilize driveshafts. Ships that operate by power can have driveshafts that run from transmission to propeller.


Did you know that double cardan driveshafts are perfect for off-roaders? This is because their double cardan joints can accommodate the higher drive angles typically found in these vehicles while their longer slip shafts can adapt to longer suspension travel.


Insufficient lubrication is one of the most common cause of driveshaft failure. However, lubricating parts that are already damaged will only help decrease noise and vibrations, not actually repair anything.


Most driveshafts are made of steel. In addition to being a strong and reliable material, it is also a good investment in terms of manufacturing costs.


Many different things can cause a driveshaft imbalance. Debris build-up, broken welds, and balance weights that have gone missing are some of the common causes.


Making modifications to your vehicle can mean that your driveshaft needs to be modified as well. For example, lowering a vehicle means that the driveshaft should be shortened.


"Driveshaft" as a term was first used around the mid-1800s. It appears in several patent reissues from that time period, including one for a horse-drawn mowing machine.


Did you know that double cardan drive shafts produce a smoother ride? This is because their two cardan joints are able to accommodate more movement as well as higher driveline angles than a standard driveshaft assembly.


When driveshafts are out of balance, it may cause your car to hum while you drive. Having the driveshaft rebalanced can help stop your car from sounding like it's singing in the shower.


Having your universal joints lubricated on a regular basis, a product of professional drive shaft service, can extend the life of your drive shaft. It can also help eliminate vehicle vibration and quiet any squeaking noises which may be present.


Did you know that a shorter drive shaft can turn faster than a longer one? However, in both cases, it is essential that the drive shafts be properly balanced. Not only does this make for safety and longevity, it also makes for the best performance as well.


If your off-road machine is more than just for show, then you're probably putting a lot of wear on its drive components. As such, it would be wise to have your driveline inspected periodically to reduce the chances of anything from spoiling your fun.


As it turns out, double cardan driveshafts are very effective at eliminating vibration. As such, it is preferred for use in off road vehicles as well as for vehicles that have high driveline angles.


Did you know that four-wheel drive vehicles have two drive shafts? While designs vary, four-wheelers typically make use of a transfer case that's connected to the transmission. This transfer case then transmits power to all four wheels via the front and rear drive shafts.


Carbon fiber driveshafts are expensive, but they boast the best strength-to-weight ratio of any of the driveshafts made of different materials. They are also good dampeners.


While the vibration that you feel at speed may be coming from unbalanced tires, it's also prudent to have the rest of your drivetrain looked at. After all, worn u-joints, center bearings or even an imbalanced drive shaft may be at fault.


Too much load-bearing weight put on a drive shaft can and will increase its inertia, causing part failure. This is why having the right type of drive shaft professionally installed and regularly maintained is so important.


Drive shaft manufacturers use a great deal of science and math in creating these hearty load transferring components. Essentially, average vehicle speeds, part length, and diameter, as well as component thickness and material module of elasticity are calculated per vehicle to come up with the right design.


The drive shaft is the part of the vehicle that is responsible for transmitting torque and rotation. In fact, the drive shaft connects other components like the universal joints ("u-joints") that cannot be connected otherwise.


Did you know that before drive shafts were popular, chains were used to transfer power to a car's wheels? While they did have advantages, these chains broke so often and needed a lot of maintenance that they eventually lost favor with manufacturers.


Although systems may vary, did you know that four-wheel drive vehicles usually have two drive shafts? Both are connected to a transfer case that sends power through them to the front and rear differentials of the vehicle.


Among the things you should include in your car's regular maintenance check are its u-joints. This is because worn u-joints have a lot of play and can cause noise and vibrations that get worse the longer you ignore the problem.


Race cars that use drawn over mandrel (DOM) steel drive shafts are taking advantage of the highest-rated drive technology in the industry. In fact, DOM drive shafts have been shown to raise torsional strength up to 22% and increase critical speed up to nearly 20%!


If you feel a sudden jolt followed by strong vibrations and noise underneath your rear-wheel drive vehicle, then chances are, your drivetrain has gone bad. The most likely culprits in this case would be worn cross-joints and an unbalanced driveshaft.


Balance and design are an important aspect of drive shaft engineering and account for gain (when done properly) and loss of horsepower. In fact, a drive shaft that has been balanced is one that has been properly tuned, resulting in reduced wheel vibration and increased wheel power.


Did you know that every driveshaft has a rotational speed that it should never exceed? This is called its critical speed and going past it will result in vibrations that get worse and worse until the whole driveshaft fails catastrophically.


Did you know that longer drive shafts cannot rotate as fast as shorter ones? This is because they have lower critical or maximum speeds that should never be exceeded. Pushing a driveshaft past its limits will inevitably result in the failure of the component.


Aluminum drive shafts are a popular choice in the car racing world as they are known to reduce rotational mass, which can liberate engine horsepower and also reduce parasitic loss. Aluminum drive shafts can support up to 1,000 horsepower and 900 pounds of torque per foot.


A drive shaft is a torque carrier, and as such, it is subject to the mechanical laws of torsion and shear stress, which is, mathematically speaking, equal to the difference between the input torque and the load itself. In other words, they must be strong enough to support such stress.
