, said: "GKN innovations make vehicles better to drive and more efficient.
GKN Driveline's patented and trade marked countertrack[TM] technology, is the first major breakthrough in constant velocity joint
(CVJ) driveshaft technology for the auto industry in the last 70 years.
Velcon"), its Mexican constant velocity joint
("CVJ") joint venture.
The most likely cause of a clicking noise heard only when the steering is set for turn is a noisy constant velocity joint
on a driveshaft.
Instead of a standard power transfer unit (PTU), GKN developed a monobloc housing that fully integrates the propshaft's constant velocity joint
The company sold its valve lifters business, its 51% stake in the constant velocity joint
business and signed a letter of intent to dissolve its joint venture with Dana Corp.
