Cadillac Steering Rack
Many parts work together to ensure that every time you turn the corner in your Cadillac, you do so safely and efficiently. One of the main components in the steering system is the Cadillac steering rack. On the upper surface of the unit is a set of gears, which interface with a pinion gear that is located on the end of the steering column. At each end of the Cadillac steering rack, it connects to a tie rod with a ball joint, and the tie rod connects to the wheels. When the steering wheel is turned, the power steering unit turns on and multiplies the force of the steering input. The combined force is transferred to the Cadillac steering rack, and it moves in the needed direction, pushing or pulling the tie rods and wheels accordingly. There is a great amount of friction involved in this system, both in the gears, and the joints that connect all of the pieces together. To ensure proper operation of the Cadillac steering rack, any joints in the steering system that have grease fittings should be lubricated at least twice a year. Eventually, however, friction will take its toll on the Cadillac steering rack, leaving the steering less than accurate, and potentially dangerous.
