Steering auto parts: Inner Tie Rod / Rack End

In modern control systems either axial or radial joints are used. The history of these joints began almost 100 years ago on the Ruville company. Initially, the details required constant maintenance, but today they are perfect. Despite this, they are subjected to extreme daily loads. Due to this fact there are high demands to the designers concerning the accuracy and the correct choice of material.

In the daily work of the repair shops a great attention is paid to these details as well-functioning driving of the car is very important. Maintenance also requires careful handling of these components. Damaged or shaking thrust bearing will lead to rapid wear of almost all other car parts. So, it is very important quickly to repair the damage and to control the car steering.

How to identify malfunction of the tie rod axle joint

This component should be checked by two persons: one person should move the components of the mechanism, and the second one should check the free play in the joints. If you ask specialists at a service station for help, they will perform diagnostics with a free-play detector. When you check the component yourself, simulate the movements in various directions for this unit. You can check whether the component is fixed in place, with a simple inspection.

To move one component against another one, use a pipe wrench and a tyre lever. In diagnosing the joints, be careful not to damage the rubber dust boots.

You may notice that the Rack End needs diagnostics by the following symptoms:

  • extraneous noise is heard;
  • steerability of the vehicle has deteriorated;
  • turning the steering wheel requires more effort;
  • the tires are excessively worn out;
  • vibration has increased and is felt on the steering wheel;
  • free play appeared.

Reasons of Inner Track Rod malfunctions

The main reason of premature wear of the component is its poor quality. Long operation causes wear and destruction of the rubber inserts, which leads to the complete failure of the component.

Another frequent reason of joint wear is the torn dust boot. This deteriorates protection of the component, and dirt gets inside and forms abrasive deposit in it. The situation is aggravated by water that gradually washes the lubricant out.

Mechanical damages of the component, like cracks and stripping of the thread, are caused by unprofessional installation. Besides, such defects may appear if you prefer aggressive style of driving, or your vehicle is often operated on poor quality roads.

Replacing the tie rod axle joint

If you replace the component yourself, strictly follow the maintenance instructions and the recommendations of the car maker stated in documentation for the specific model. To replace it, do the following:

  • lock the rear wheels of the vehicle;
  • lift the left and right side of the vehicle to unload the stabilizer;
  • unscrew the bolt of the suspension joint under the shock absorber strut;
  • extract the joint stud;
  • mark the initial position of the component;
  • unscrew the mounting nuts of the replaced component;
  • install a new component in the place you marked;
  • tighten the nuts on the joint, and the clamping bolt, the tightening torque for the latter should be 65 Nm;
  • have wheels aligned at a service station.

The maximum period of use of the component should not exceed 100 thousand kilometers of mileage.
