Trail & Parts Terminology
« on: October 25, 2012, 04:22:07 PM »
Unsure about your off-road terminology?
From the February, 2009 issue of 4Wheel & Off-Road, plus a few additions of our own

point attached to the spindle.
Add-A-Leaf An extra spring leaf that is added to the spring pack.
Air Box Enclosed chamber that routes fresh air to the carburetor or intake manifold. Some trucks use an air box
with an integral filter; some use a remote filter at the air box's intake duct.
Air-Down To lower the air pressure in tires. Airing down increases traction and smoothes out the ride over rough
Air/Fuel Mixture The ratio of air to gasoline that makes the fuel mixture. Theoretically, the perfect ratio is
Alloy Axles Axle shafts made from high strength, high tensile alloy that withstand higher torsional loads than stock axles.

Arizona Pinstriping deep scratches in the vehicle’s paint from thorny vegetation that wants to hurt you.
Axle Hop When a truck's axle-housing rotates opposite the direction as the tires under acceleration, then snaps back to its original position relative to the chassis. Sometimes, this motion is repetitive until the driver reduces the degree of acceleration. Syn. Axle wrap.
Axle Housing Exterior non-rotating housing that contains the axle shafts, differential, and the gears that drive the wheels.
Axle Wrap A condition where the rotational load from an axle is placed on the leaf spring. Springs are flexed into an "S" shape, storing spring energy until the tires slip.
