The couplings and drive shafts are another part of the transmission of an off-road especially pliable if we are facing a harsh path. All the kinematic chain has the function of transmitting motion from the engine to the wheels. Starting then the dispensed reciprocating motion by the pistons is transmitted, through the connecting rods, the crankshaft that converts it into rotary motion.
The crankshaft transfers the driving torque on the axes passing through the transmission-reduction gear and the differential which again turns the shaft longitudinal motion in the transverse motion. From the differential depart so the axle shafts which engage in the wheel hub. In the case of steered wheels, then for the front axle, between the axle shaft and the hub they are interposed the constant velocity joints.
In use off-road the front wheels, during the rotation with the steering angles of important or in the event that they are equipped to larger tires or working also with the differential block inserted, downloading of joints and drive shafts a force that often causes the failure of these organs .
The only solution to avoid these frequent breakages is to replace joints and drive shafts with a high resistance load products. We propose a joint kits and drive shafts super reinforced Longfield made for the replacement of the original. Axle shafts, couplings and ball cage are made from 100% chromoly steel. All components undergo a heat treatment and optimization which increases its resistance. Our kits are available for various models of off-road and provide excellent compatibility and competitive performance.
