What does a rack and pinion do?

What is a rack and pinion?

Your rack and pinion is one of your steering components. Inside the rack and pinon, it has a pinion gear that is round. This connects to the steering column shaft. It also has a rack gear which is flat. The pinion gear stays stationary. It moves the rack gear back and forth as you turn your steering wheel. From there it connects to the tie rods that are connected to the knuckle at your wheel. This allows you to turn your vehicle. Give us a call and let us take care of you.
