Japanparts has launched a new range of constant-velocity (CV) joints for the aftermarket.
Constant-velocity joints, also known as homokinetic joints, allow a drive shaft to transmit torque through a variable angle, at constant rotational speed, without an appreciable increase in friction or play.
They are mainly used in front wheel drive vehicles, and many modern rear wheel drive cars with independent rear suspension typically use homokinetic joints at the ends of the rear axle half-shafts and increasingly use them on the drive shafts.
Why replacing CV-joints?
Constant-velocity joints are usually protected by a rubberboot, filled with molybdenum disulphide grease. In case this rubber boot cracks or damages for any reason, grease leaks and lets the joint turn unlubricated.
In addition external contaminating agents can corrode the joint’s components. This causes quick wear of the joint and drives it to a shorter life, which can end up in dramatic effects in case of failure.
What does Japanparts Group offer?
Covering 93 per cent of vehicles on the road, Japanparts Group presents a range with more than 800 CV – joints available for Asian, European and American vehicles, including many parts which are usually difficult to find in the aftermarket
