If your car makes unpleasant crunching noise when you turn the wheel, chances are your steering mount is worn out and needs to be replaced. Here at Euro Car Parts, we offer only the best racks and mounts in a range of shapes and sizes.
The steering rack is an enclosed, solid metal component that allows the wheels of your car to react in unison with the steering wheel, enabling you to control the direction of your car.
A series of u-joints and shafts connect the rack to the steering wheel. As you turn the steering wheel, the rack pinion moves it to the left or right. As the ends of the rack are also connected to the wheels of your car, this turns them in the same direction as your steering wheel.
With so many parts working together to help you steer your car, there are plenty of potential issues that may arise with your steering rack. These may include everything from worn or damaged shaft arms, to pinions, to spindles. So, if one small part of the rack stops working properly, it is likely that its other parts will also soon follow. With this in mind, we advise replacing your defective steering rack with a whole new, like-for-like component.
