How Does An Auto Steering System Work?

As you rotate the steering wheel, the auto responds. But how does this steering system in an auto allow you to have a smooth route? Steering system parts transmit steering wheel movements down the steering shaft, which moves the wheels left and right. However, auto wheels do not turn at the same angle. 


Why Would I Need My Steering Checked?

The suspension and steering systems of your vehicle experience wear and tear due to normal driving conditions and driving habits. Over time, all of the components that make up those systems will wear and weaken, such as struts, shocks, control arm bushings, ball joints, coil springs, and steering linkage.

What Is The Common Type Of Steering System?

There is a rack and pinion steering system in most cars, small trucks, and SUVs on the road today. By converting the rotational motion of the steering wheel into linear motion, the wheels are turned and your path is guided. The system involves a circular gear (steering pinion) which locks teeth on a bar (rack). This system also transforms big rotations of the steering wheel into small, accurate turns of the wheels, giving a solid and direct feel to the steering.
