A pair of stub axles support the front wheels in rear-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive cars. Car Parts 4 Less offers low prices on stub axles for any car.
Stub axles look like the blunted end of a full-size axle, which is how they got their name. Each one is part of an assembly that includes a number of wheel bearings. Each axle pivots on a kingpin to allow the wheels to turn left or right at the same time. Cars with rear-wheel and four-wheel drive need stub axles because the long driveshaft and other parts take up too much space to accommodate one full-size axle. A faulty or damaged stub axle could lead to wheel misalignment, which in turn could cause a loss of control at the wheel. For your safety and that of others on the road, you must always replace a broken stub axle. To find the right stub axles for your vehicle, please enter your details in the search tool on the left.
