The CV joint housing is used on mainly four wheel drives that are designed to allow for the use of a short drive and to eliminate center misalignment. It is also used on some rear drive shafts as well as on some combination axles. Other uses include full moon drive applications and in general, the CV joint is used to form the interior ring of the spline axles. In general, the CV joint is formed using spline axles.
A CV joint housing is a type of wheel housing that uses a two-link design. A wheel decoupler device is also offered that features a front wheel drive assembly and a constant velocity joint inner housing . The front wheel drive assembly also contains a housing and one or more actuators . The constant velocity joint inner housing has one or more annular ports that are used to allow for fluid travel between the input side of the housing and the output side.
