Stub Axels

Stub Axels

Rear-wheel drive cars are built differently to those with front-wheel drive setups or even four-wheel drive models. They have a driveshaft at the rear that powers the rear wheels and, subsequently, the car; but they rely on stub axles at the front. Stub axles differ in the sense that they are attached to one wheel each at the front, with a number of wheel bearings supporting the hub, and pivoting around a kingpin to help the car to steer left, right and straight ahead. It is much shorter - hence its name - but still performs a major role in delivering power to the wheels so that all four are turning at the same speed. If this wasn't the case, and one of the stub axles had been damaged, then it could be very dangerous to drive the car. If you notice that your steering is not aligned correctly despite having it checked, the stub axles could be the issue and new ones are available here at Car Parts 4 Less.
