High-level Performance Parts and Gearbox Specialists

Performance vehicles are a unique breed of machine, producing more horsepower, capable of accelerating at much faster speeds and consequently producing far more stress on the vehicle’s drivetrain and power transmission. This all confirms the requirement for superior parts and components which transcend the limits of standard specifications.

We understand the importance of using parts and components designed for such intense demands, with stronger and more durable parts that are specifically built to handle the extraordinary stress high performance vehicles are known to produce, without comprising functionality. 

As Australia’s leading drivetrain and power transmission specialists for over 30 years, Driveline has a wealth of knowledge and experience to assist you with all of your high performance projects and enquires. At Driveline, we offer product ranges to empower your performance vehicle to drive and perform as it should.

When you need power and performance, you need Driveline performance parts and custom upgrades.

World-Class Performance Division

Driveline’s expertise in high-performance componentry is driven by our world-class Diff & Gearbox Division, which is a fundamental part of our underbody & power transmission portfolio. This division specialises in the design and manufacture of custom differentials, gearboxes, axles and driveshaft applications for nine-inch street, strip, circuit and off-road applications. Our team can readily take your specifications and special requirements and craft parts that deliver the performance you’re seeking.

Our proficiency with manufacturing advanced parts was born from our experience as Australia’s leading drivetrain and underbody specialists. After decades of industry specialisation and thousands of power transmissions worked on over the past 30 years, we’ve developed the skills and knowledge required to craft superior parts that perform to the highest level. We then refined these skills to meet the extreme demands of performance vehicles.

By leveraging our understanding of the complete power transmission process, Driveline's diff and gearbox specialists are experts at maximising torque and performance along the entire length of your driveline.

With these skills and experiences, our Performance Division proudly offers the following products and services geared towards high-level performance vehicles:

Selection of Superior Brands

Although we carry our own range of Driveline performance parts, we know that some owners and vehicles may prefer parts from other brands. That’s why we also work with an extensive range of products sourced from the world's foremost performance brands, including Sonnax, Yukon, Strange, Exedy, and many more.

As leading specialists with decades of experience in the industry, we know which brands can be trusted and which products match our high standards. You can, therefore, rest assured that any third-party brand we work with offers the same level of excellence and quality that you expect from us. If it is not good enough for us, then it’s not good enough for you.

Of course, when it comes to the ultimate upgrade, nothing can match the improvements that customised parts offer. That’s why Driveline's diff and gearbox division can custom build practically any drivetrain or underbody part for you. Whether you want all-out brawn in your upgrade or a more reserved improvement to fit your budget, we’ll be able to design and manufacture performance parts according to your needs.

When bad luck strikes and you need smash repair work completed on your vehicle, one thing’s for sure: you need to have the right specialists and technicians working on it.

That’s because high-performance vehicles require a higher level of service and maintenance than standard vehicles. This is especially true if you want to retain – or perhaps even improve – your vehicle’s performance specs. To do this effectively, however, you need specialists who truly know how to work with high-performance vehicles. And that’s exactly who our Driveline technicians are: expert mechanics and specialists who not only know how to maintain performance specs after repairs, but also how to improve them.

Diff & Axle Straightening

When it comes to differentials and axles, any respectable mechanic will tell you that you should have either fixed immediately if you see the first sign of trouble. Bent axles and diffs cause severe problems and issues down the road, especially if not repaired promptly. In most cases, it’s simply not worth risking your vehicle – and, far more importantly, potentially your life – by continuing to drive with a bent or damaged driveline.

As leading diff and gearbox specialists, we absolutely agree that these parts are integral to the function and performance of your car and even more critical for high-performance vehicles. When it comes to performance vehicles, the smallest and slightest damage can quickly turn into the biggest problem. If you want to maximise your vehicle’s safety and performance, then you have to make sure that your diffs and axles are always in top condition.

Our specialists can fix any misalignments or damage on your vehicle’s differentials or axles and readily provide the following services:

  • Diff Straightening
  • Axle Straightening
  • Bearing Replacements
  • Diff Centre Repairs
  • Laser Alignments
  • Full Workshop Facilities

Remember always to be aware of some of the symptoms of bent or damaged diffs and axles. These include:

  • Worn bearings
  • Difficulty with properly aligning your vehicle
  • Unexplained squeaks and noises from the wheels
  • Uneven wearing of tires

If you experience symptoms like these on your vehicle, then it’s best that you have it checked by our specialists as soon as you can. With our expert technicians and our special tools and equipment, we’ll be able to diagnose and fix any diff or axle issues that your vehicle may have.
