FAQs—Toyota Axle Assembly
- The original axle fitted in my Toyota was damaged. Is it alright to replace it with an aftermarket Toyota axle assembly? Is there anything I need to take note of?
Generally, a factory-installed Toyota axle assembly works best within its factory parameters. If you will be getting power-adders, putting in bigger tires, or adding extreme wheeling, it is better to get an aftermarket axle assembly as these enhancements can cause the stock axle to break under pressure. Nowadays, many manufacturers and suppliers offer axle assemblies that are delivered directly to your doorstep. Although there are still some that will require you to repair and reuse the factory equipment from your old axle, most suppliers already offer direct replacement and improved housings, which can be bolted in place with no fabrication required.
- It has been quite some time since I last sent my Toyota vehicle for a check-up. Recently, I noticed some strange noises and difficulty when parking or turning in corners. What seems to be the problem and how can I go about it?
There are many factors that can cause these issues especially if you have not done maintenance for a long time. However, signs such as difficulty during parking or turning in corners, strange noises or vibrations may indicate problems with your Toyota axle assembly, particularly the axle shaft. A common culprit of these issues is worn or broken U-joints. Make sure to pay attention to the kind of noise and the circumstance under which it happens as not all noises or vibrations signify an axle problem. If you are confident and have experience with automotive repair works, you can do the axle repairs concerning U-joints all by yourself. It is highly recommended to do a regular maintenance check-up to keep your vehicle working in top condition.
- My Toyota has been making vibrations and clunking sounds when shifting gears. The mechanic said it was an axle assembly problem, specifically the U-joint. Is it possible to fix this on my own?
Yes, you can repair or replace a U-joint if you have an experience in automotive repairs. You can start by checking the axle shaft. Rust and leaking grease are visible signs of damaged U-joints. For closer inspection, you can remove the axle shaft. Usually, cleaning, tightening, or lubricating the U-joints can solve the issues. However, if you need to replace the U-joints, make sure to get the appropriate parts and follow the correct procedures. You can browse the web or check out your repair manual for some detailed steps on how to replace the U-joints.
- I accidently drove my Toyota into a shallow ditch. After that, I start noticing occasional sputter and rumble during acceleration. A friend said the Toyota axle assembly might be damaged. Since the sounds and vibrations are faint, do I still need to have it repaired?
To get an accurate diagnosis, it is recommended to take your vehicle to a skilled mechanic. If your axle assembly is worn or damaged, you definitely need to have it fixed. A broken axle may cause severe damage to your vehicle if left unrepaired. Your car will eventually stop moving and will just keep revving up.
- I am currently finishing the restoration of my chassis assembly. What are the pointers to consider when cleaning the insides of the rear Toyota axle assembly?
You can start by filling the center housing with mineral spirits and drain it a few times. Drive your vehicle for a few miles to circulate the fluid, drain the flushing fluid, and refill with gear oil. You can do this procedure a couple of times to get the flushing fluid out of the wheel bearing hubs.
