This course is one of several subcourses that make up the entire Army correspondence course on wheeled vehicle maintenance. The subcourse is designed to provide the student with information about the operation, malfunction diagnosis, maintenance, and repair of wheeled vehicle drive lines, axles, and suspension systems. It provides the basic theory, and also includes on-the-job task assignments. The subcourse is divided into six lessons covering the following topics: propeller shaft assemblies; introduction to axle assemblies; maintenance of axles; introduction to suspension system components; maintenance of springs, shock absorbers, and frames; and maintenance of tires and wheels. Each lesson contains objectives, text, task assignments, and review exercises. Answers for the exercises are provided after the final lesson, along with an examination and application task test. This subcourse is designed for student self-study, but could be used in small group learning situations. (KC)
