Steering Parts

On newer cars, that have power steering with rack and pinion steering, there are two main power steering parts, the pump, the rack and pinion unit and power steering hoses.

In a modern power steering system, the pump provides power steering fluid under pressure to the rack and pinion unit. When the driver provides steering input by turning the steering wheel, the power steering control valve applies fluid pressure to one side of a piston, which assists the driver in turning the wheel.

When any of these steering parts wear out or are faulty, the power steering unit as a whole can stop working and this could lead to a more difficult and possibly dangerous drive.

Suspension Parts

In automotive usage, the term "suspension" refers to a range of car parts that connect the vehicle to the road. Every car has a suspension that is designed to do three things:

  • Support the vehicle
  • Absorb bumps and other shocks
  • Allow the vehicle to turn in response to steering input from the driver

Modern suspensions are composed of hundreds of different parts, and vehicles vary tremendously in their suspension designs, but every suspension is composed of certain major subsystems. The major types of suspension components and systems include:

  • Springs
  • Wheels and tires
  • Shock absorbers and struts
  • Linkages
  • Bushings, bearings, and joints
