Light Commercial Vehicle Propshafts

Strength, stiffness, precision balance and low mass are the essential properties of propshafts in ensuring durability and minimum levels of Noise Vibration Harshness (NVH). Shaft joints and couplings also have to accommodate severe service loads, high angles and apparent changes in path length, due to relative displacement between axles and the gearbox in light commercial vehicles.

GKN Driveline's unique capability and innovative lead in crash optimised shafts ensures a safer and more comfortable driving experience.
