How to Measure an Axle
An axle is the rod that passes through the center of a group of wheels in a vehicle, and when it is time for replacement, it is important to know how to measure an axle. In order to accurately measure an axle, follow these steps:
1. Elevate the end of the vehicle that you are measuring the axle from. This will provide you with the largest angle and distance your vehicle will need during operation.
2. Once the vehicle is elevated and the old axle is removed, you must take the measurement from the face of the differential to the inner face of the wheel hub (pictured here).
3. Once you have successfully measured the axle at full droop, you can lower the vehicle back to the ground to take measurements for the compressed level. Most vehicles run the same length on each side, but it can help to measure both sides in case yours is an exception. Measuring the compressed length of an axle can help your vehicle provide the best functionality at performance.
