Universal Joints & Steering Universal Joints

Steering U Joint Suppliers

Universal joints are couplings that are used to transmit rotary power by means of a shaft that operates at any angle. Consisting of two hinges that are in close proximity to each other, each hinge is located within 90° of the other one, and is securely connected using a cross shaft. This results in a universal joint that looks like a ‘plus’ sign, with rounded tips located on all four ends of the component. The principle behind these joints has been in use for a very long time, although modern manufacturers like Mazda, Kawasaki and Suzuki have greatly improved the capabilities of these joints.

Steering Universal Joints and Couplings

Universal joints imbue a drive train with extra flexibility. Vehicles need to flex during motion in order to prevent excessive wear and tear from afflicting the rear and transmission, and so a universal coupling allows a bent joint to move in any direction. This is especially needed when a shaft needs to be in constant rotary motion, and good quality joints are renowned for surviving for years without causing any undue trouble. Similarly, couplings that can be greased with lube are required to avoid premature failure in off-road conditions, so more specific capabilities are sometimes essential to meet individual requirements.
