About power transmission shaft

Driveshafts are built to transmit power across rotating shafts, even when placed under stress. The driveshaft connects the front and rear axles. It resembles a large metal rod with a circular cross-section to which other components are attached to form a complete assembly. Axle shaft assemblies and drive shafts are used to couple a transmission with either an axle or another component such as a differential on four-wheel-drive vehicles. There are various types of wholesale power transmission shaft available for cars, trucks, vans, and more!


Custom driveshafts can be selected and personalized using an assembly that consists of a journal, shaft, bearings, and U-joints all working together. It is important to match the components with the correct specification as per size, type and load applied. Front driveshafts add an aggressive look to vehicles and improve traction under hard acceleration by eliminating the torque reaction. These front driveshafts are made with equal length shafting and universal joints for a great fit without modifications. Rear driveshafts are also important for the vehicle transmission system. They transfer the power produced by the engine to the rear axle assembly with the least amount of friction and heat buildup. Universal driveshafts are used for SUVs, trucks, and other large trucks that have a long wheelbase. These driveshafts are relatively expensive but worth the investment.


Carbon-fiber driveshafts provide a very light yet strong replacement for conventional steel or aluminum shafts. Carbon fiber is a unique material whose strength and stiffness can be tailored to meet specific engineering requirements. That's not it! We have more wholesale power transmission shaft including driveshaft replacement parts, aluminum driveshafts, 2-piece driveshafts, and truck driveshafts.
