The manual steering rack is a key component in your car's steering system. It is located between the front two wheels of your car. The manual steering rack allows you to direct your car in the right direction by turning your steering wheel to the left or right.
There is a rack and pinion gearset in manual steering racks. The pinion rolls over teethed grooves in the steering rack. The main purpose of the steering rack is to turn your car's wheels. It does this by converting your steering wheel's rotational motion into linear motion. The rack and pinion is confined in a metal tube. The rack protrudes from each end of the tube and is connected to a rod, called the tie rod.
The pinion, connected to the steering shaft, rotates when you turn the steering wheel. This moves the rack. Most modern cars, SUVs and small trucks are now equipped with a power steering system. However, there are still a lot of older cars that rely on manual steering.
