One of the most important things that you can do to make your tires last is to perform…

What is a Transfer Case?

The transfer case on your all-wheel-drive (AWD) or four-wheel-drive (4WD) vehicle is what makes shifting the gear ratio from two-wheel to 4WD possible. Placed behind the transmission, they work together with the driveshaft to change the vehicle’s drive.

The transmission’s power is transferred to both axles. The gears inside the case adjust the rotation and speed of all four tires, so they move at the same rate. The 4WD mode slows the vehicle’s speed so that it can gain better traction to move through tougher terrain.

Understanding a Differential

A differential is a component responsible for compensating for the difference between the distance of the inner and outer wheels going around a corner. Depending on the type of vehicle you have, the differential may even have its own housing and lubrication method.
