Audi Power Steering Rack Parts
Ever wondered what keeps you in control of your vehicle when driving? Sure, there are the wheels, the brakes, various other components, but the actual control over the vehicle is enabled through the steering wheel. And what connects the wheel to the wheels is a rack and pinion type of steering. The entire ability to control a moving vehicle is boiled down to these two components, so making sure they work as they should and are replaced and looked after regularly is key.

A rack and pinion type of steering is one of the most commonly used types of steering with cars and SUVs. Its concept and mechanism is pretty simple. A pinion attached to the steering shaft rotate on a rack, moving along it and turning it left or right, which then means that the rack's movement force the tie rods at the end to turn the wheels subsequently. This mechanism converts that motion of the steering wheel into an actual linear force needed to turn the wheels, and because of its gear reduction the wheels are easier to turn.
