Driveshaft Carrier Bearing
At Alvie's Transmission in Jacksonville, our goal is to keep your car, truck, or SUV shifting and riding as smoothly as it did the day it rolled off the lot. A big part of that is the mounting hardware that keeps the moving parts in your drivetrain running smooth.
A part that is integral to your vehicle’s ride is the carrier bearing on your axles or driveshaft. A carrier bearing has a simple job, it keeps the axle or driveshaft firmly in place, and reduces vibration from these parts. A carrier bearing serves as both a mount, and a bearing, meaning for it to work efficiently, both the rubber insulation, and the bearing itself need to be in good shape. If the bearing goes bad, it will make a sort of roaring or growling sound while you’re cruising down the road, and you may feel a vibration throughout the car as you drive. If the rubber insulation has dry rotted or worn out, generally you will feel a deeper vibration or a wobble at certain speeds and under acceleration.
Inherently, a carrier bearing is often the culprit of vehicle shaking and vibration. It’s one part with two ways to malfunction and is constantly under pressure and exposed to the elements. Fortunately, they aren’t particularly difficult or expensive to replace since it’s a standalone component outside of the transmission.
If your vehicle is exhibiting the symptoms above, or you have any other transmission service needs, our mechanics have you covered. For the best transmission repair and maintenance shop in Jacksonville, call or come by Alvie's Transmission today.
