|Explore Topics of Steering Rod
One of the two metal rods, on each end of the Steering Rack that connects it to the front wheels via Ball Joints (Tie Rod Ends) is known as a Steering Rod.
Tie rod transmits the force from the steering center link or rack gear to the steering knuckle. This process makes the wheel turn. The outer tie rod end is connected to an adjustable sleeve allowing the length of the tie rod to adjust itself easily. This adjustment sets the alignment angle of the vehicle.
Though the tie rods are connected in various ways but one needs to make sure that the strength of the connection is equal to that of rod. The ends can be threaded and then passed through drilled holes or through U-shaped piece of metal, secured with a pin or bolt across the opening. Tie-rods are then fit by nuts that are screwed on the ends.
