We started specializing in rear end differential service and repair in the early 1980s. Our reputation grew with every satisfied customer and, before long, people were bringing in their cars and trucks from all over the Bay Area. Still, we haven’t grown too big or too busy to give every job our full attention and to let you know exactly what’s going on with your vehicle.
Driving straight down the road, your vehicle’s wheels naturally spin in sync. But when you turn a corner, the outer wheels must travel a greater distance than the inner wheels. An outside wheel that can’t keep up in the turns will skip and skid, making for a bumpy, and possibly dangerous, ride. Your rear-wheel drive car or truck is equipped with a differential on the rear axle, where it delivers equal force to each wheel while allowing them to rotate at different speeds (thus the term “differential”).
