Zylstra Automotive & Diesel in Visalia now is able to provide GM front axles for 4WD & AWD vehicles solving the issues of many vehicles ranging from 2002 models to 2009 models. Our supplier, Jasper Engines & Transmissions, the nation’s leader in re-manufactured drive train products, is offering complete re-manufactured GM front axle actuator assemblies for 4WD and AWD late model SUVs.
These actuator assemblies fit the following vehicles:
- 2002-2009 Chevy Trailblazer
- 2002-2008 GMC Envoy
- 2002-2003 Oldsmobile Bravada
- 2004-2007 Buick Rainier
- 2003-2007 Isuzu Ascender
What is different? The 4WD actuator assembly includes a new electric shift motor installed on the housing, two side gears that spline into the left and right axle shafts, along with a shift fork and collar that shifts the vehicle into, and out of, four-wheel drive. The AWD actuator has a metal plate covering the electric shift motor mount. Internally, the assembly uses a coupler gear which connects both left and right axle shafts together, making the vehicle all-wheel drive.
JASPER uses a synthetic grease in their re-manufactured actuators in place of the standard lithium-style complex grease which has better lubricant flow, especially in cold conditions.
In addition, one major complaint from vehicle owners is a squealing, or squalling, noise coming from the actuator. The problem occurs when dry seals rub against the axle shaft. These seals, if not pre-lubricated, will cause that condition when the shaft is turning and at JASPER, all axle shaft seals are pre-lubricated during assembly.
