Rack and Pinion

Service Description
Rack-and-pinion steering is quickly becoming the most common type of steering on cars, small trucks and SUVs. The rack-and-pinion gearset does two things. First, it converts the motion of the steering wheel into the motion needed to turn the wheels. Second, it provides a gear reduction, making it easier to turn the wheels. Simply put, your vehicle's steering system relies on the rack and pinion to make steering feel 'tight.' Bring your vehicle to Big O Tires for a diagnosis of your steering system.

Included in your service:

  • Diagnosis of steering system
  • Repair rack and pinion as necessary
