Truck Driveline Repair Service in Calgary & Lethbridge, Alberta

Truck Driveline Repair Service at Foothills Group

The driveline of your vehicle is the root of your truck’s control. It connects the transmission to the axles and moves your vehicle backwards and forwards. The driveline is composed of all the gears and axles required to keep your truck running.

You driveline is composed of many parts, including:

  • Transfer case 
  • Axles 
  • Driveshaft
  • U-Joints/CV Joints
  • Differential gears

The differential is one important component of your driveline. For instance, if you drive around a corner your outside wheel has to travel farther than the inside wheel. It may not seem like a lot, but if not compensated properly it can cause serious damage to your vehicle. Your differential makes up for the difference in the distance through a set of gears that mechanically transfer the torque. This occurs to maintain the load on the engine and to keep the transmission steady regardless of the type of turn you make. 

Foothills Group is here to manage all of your necessary driveline maintenance and repair requirements. We don’t want you to experience problems, which is why we are here to fix them for you. We value your time and have a genuine concern for how issues with your vehicle can affect your business and operations. Our abilities allow us to maximize advanced technology and high-quality equipment to repair your vehicle in an efficient and timely manner. 

Signs your driveline needs to be serviced

  • You haven’t had service in a while - All drivelines need a periodic inspection to prevent downtime or warranty issues. Be proactive to prevent more severe damages.
  • You’ve driven 30,000 - 43,000 miles without changing your differential fluid - The differential fluid is critical to keeping this component running smoothly. If you’re hauling heavy loads, we recommend even more frequent service appointments.
  • The truck has been driven hard - The frequent popping of the clutch or spinning of the tires can wreak havoc because when they catch, it creates a shock load that can result in either a fractured U-joint or driveline tube being twisted.
  • There’s been an accident -  Even minor impacts such as backing up into a loading dock or hitting a parking pole can damage the driveline. This type of collision creates extensive shock and unexpected pressure on the driveline that can be catastrophic. ‍
