  • Single shaft: usually made of aluminum or steel with high strength, light weight; used on 4-wheel vehicles with a small distance between the engine and the axle.
  • Two-three-piece crankshaft: used for 4-wheel vehicles with a large distance between the shaft and the engine.

  5. Flange: connect the shaft to the transmission, gearbox, differential...
  6. Coupling (U-joint): connects the rotating axles of the vehicle, drives the wheels to move the vehicle.
