What is a universal joint?
A u-joint is a mechanical device that connects rotating shafts on different planes. It allows for rotary motion between two points that don’t align. In a vehicle, this allows for the driveshaft and rear axle to remain aligned over bumpy terrain.
Why do universal joints make squeaking noises?
Over time, the grease in a joint may deteriorate, causing a metal-on-metal squeaking sound while driving. This is a sign your u-joints need lubricated, if possible, or replaced.
What vehicles have universal joints?
U-joints are most often found in pickup trucks and other rear-wheel-drive vehicles, at both ends of the driveshaft.
What are some examples of universal joints in an engine?
In a vehicle, u-joints are typically x-shaped parts that connect the driveshaft to the transmission. These freely rotating joints allow the rotating motion of a crankshaft to power the rear axle of the vehicle.
