Steering Rack and Control Arm Kit
The Steering Rack and Control Arm Kit includes a steering rack, control arm and all its associated components. The steering rack is a part of the rack-and-pinion steering control. It is an elongated metal shaft with a flat surface on one side and grooves on the other side. The steering rack is the component on which the pinion slides back and forth. The circular end of the pinion rests on the rack, and its other end is connected to the steering shaft and steering wheel. The sliding of the pinion on the rack determines the turning of the vehicle's wheels.
The control arm is a part that connects the steering rack to the car's wheels or hub. The control arm's function is to keep the automobile's wheels and tires attached to the car frame, while allowing the wheels to rotate. The control arm manages the motion of the vehicle's wheels in relation to the car's body, by pivoting based on the level variations in the road. So, a straight and perpendicular relation between the road and the wheels is maintained.
If you experience a stutter in your steering or if your vehicle tends to wander at high speeds, it could be an indication that the steering rack is at fault. Additionally, if you sense a dead-zone in your steering range, the steering rack may need to be replaced. If you hear a clunking noise while driving over bumps or other road irregularities, sense too much movement in the wheels, or experience wobbling of the steering wheel at high speeds, your control arm may be faulty. If your vehicle exhibits any of the aforementioned symptoms, you need to inspect your vehicle's steering rack and control arm, and replace them if required.
