What is Front Differential Service?
When a vehicle makes a turn, the inside wheels turn slower and cover a slightly shorter distance compared to the outside wheels. Due to the physics of cornering, the inside and outside wheels need to rotate independently of each other at slightly different speeds. A Differential is a component that automatically adjusts for the variable wheel rotation needed every time you turn a corner. Beyond supporting the difference in wheel spin, the Differential is what also promotes traction at each wheel-tire assembly as your vehicle corners. Without a Front Differential, your vehicle would have a difficult time turning corners smoothly, and the wheels would have poor traction with the road in corners. Also of importance is the effect of a defective Front Differential on your tires – faulty front differentials are infamous for causing rapid and uneven tire tread wear that demands more frequent tire replacement with increased operational costs. It is for these reasons that Front Differential Service is an excellent decision if you are experiencing any of the warning signs of a Front Differential problem.
