Rack and pinion steering has become one of the most common steering systems in automobiles with power assist for good reason. The system includes a slotted rack that attaches to each front wheel’s tie rods, and a pinion gear on the end of the steering column that turns the slotted teeth on the steering rack. This allows the system to convert the column’s rotational motion from the steering wheel into linear motion needed to turn the wheels. When you turn the steering wheel on a rack and pinion system, the steering wheel turns the column and the pinion, allowing the pinion to move the rack back and forth to turn the wheel.

It’s a simple, straightforward system, making it lightweight and easy to work on. The system’s simplicity gives you more advantages than just a lighter front end. The system gives you a precise steering feel for the road, and it easily incorporates with the power steering pump for assisted steering.

Rack and pinion steering is a great option to replace a more traditional steering system, but—like all auto parts—the system wears out over time. Signs of a worn rack and pinion include grinding noises when turning, loose steering with too much play, power steering fluid leaks from worn O rings and boots, and uneven tire wear. Luckily, the straightforward nature of the rack and pinion ensures that there are only a few moving parts to inspect, so troubleshooting and making repairs are straightforward.
