Before you fully understand the primary function of the Replacement steering shaft, it might help that you learn first some of the fundamentals of the steering system. First and foremost, you should know that a manual steering system incorporates a steering wheel and column, manual gearbox and pitman arm or a rack and pinion assembly, linkages, steering knuckles and ball joints and lastly, the wheel spindle assembly. Power steering systems add a hydraulic pump, fluid reservoir, hoses, line and a power assist unit that is mounted on or integral with a control assembly. You must also get yourself acquainted with several different manual steering gears.
Note that the steering wheel and column are the primary causes of injury to the driver. A range of energy-absorbing and non-intrusion designs developed lately to increase operator safety. Energy-absorbing steering shaft columns have to perform two functions. One to stop the steering wheel and column from being pushed to the rear when the front of the vehicle is crushed in an impact, and two to provide the operator with a tolerable impact as he moves towards the front and strikes the wheel with his chest. In the overall steering system, the steering shaft plays an important part in the safe and efficient control of the steering system. Bear in mind. However, that steering shaft will periodically wear out and function imperfectly. This time, you need to take the necessary action, and that is to replace it with a new one.
Borgeson will repair or replace, at our option, any replacement truck steering assembly found to be defective in either material or quality within the warranty period of Five Years or 50,000 miles.
