Steering Rack/Gearbox Replacement Service

What is the Steering Rack/Gearbox all about?

A rack and pinion system uses several large components. This includes your main-shaft, universal joints, and an underlying intermediate shaft which immediately responds to all your steering wheel movements.

This rack and pinion system is designed to make your car’s steering easier to turn with the added help of a power assisted pump or motor. The typical car sold these days now weighs over 3000 pounds and larger vehicles like trucks and SUVs often weigh over 5000 pounds. The steering rack along with this power assist system are what allow you to easily move all that heavy mass between the steering wheel and your tires without so much as breaking a sweat.

Keep in mind:

The steering rack requires heavy and sometimes sophisticated equipment to operate properly. Many of the big and heavy parts that are underneath your vehicle, such as the shafts and universal joints, can gradually wear out over the course of time.

If you feel your steering is tight, chances are your rack is perfectly fine. It’s when your steering feels sloppy, or when you start seeing power steering fluid underneath your vehicle, that an inspection should be done. Also, keep in mind that damage to major suspension parts, such as your CV axles, ball joints, and tie rod ends, can make your steering feel loose and uneven.

This is why it’s a good idea to have your entire steering and suspension system inspected whenever you suspect that there is an issue with your steering.

How it's done:

  • The vehicle is raised and supported on jack stands
  • The tires are removed and tie rods and steering gear disconnected
  • The steering rack and gear box is replaced
  • The system is filled with new fluid, tires reinstalled
  • The vehicle is lowered off of the jack stands

Our recommendation:

If your steering starts to feel clunky or uneven, get it inspected at the earliest possible opportunity. Even a minor issue, such as a cracked seal in between major components, can leak power steering fluid onto your steering rack. This can lead lead to the deterioration or even the complete failure of your steering rack. It’s worth your time to contact one of our top-rated mechanics so that the quickest and most reasonable solution can be pursued for your steering system.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Steering Rack/Gearbox?

  • Sloppy or uneven steering that takes varying levels of effort.
  • Power steering fluid leaks that are usually at the rear of the engine bay or underneath your car.
  • A hard ‘clunk’ noise when you go over large bumps coupled with a feel of being disconnected to the steering wheel.

How important is this service?

Steering is one of those aspects of driving that you never want to shortchange. Often times, a small issue can be due to little more than a leaking power steering hose or a malfunctioning power steering pump. These both tend to be far less expensive repairs than a steering rack.

However, if your steering rack is in need of replacement the consequences of ignoring it can be dire. The worst accidents tend to happen due to the loss of control on a vehicle and your steering rack is the one component that enables your steering to remain precise. If your steering is giving you trouble, it’s important to address it promptly.

Mitsubishi Montero Sport V6-3.0L - Car is not starting - Gresham, Oregon
He found the problem right away and fixed it with no problems!! Plus he helped blow up my flat tire and made sure my check engine light was off. He even arrived earlier then planned. Thanks for being so thorough and fast. He was able to show up two hours before his schedule time and my car is fixed 40 mins before my actually appointment time. Thanks a lot!!!

Mitsubishi Montero Sport V6-3.5L - Timing Belt - Los Angeles, California
We had the best experience with David Martin at YourMechanic.com and would completely recommend both for anyone needing an honest, meticulous, and very smart mechanic with a great personality. I had a unique situation that needed a mechanic with the best care and David completely delivered. My Mitsubishi Montero Sport had been garaged for 4 years because I had been traveling so there were a lot of unique things that needed to be done to get it back on the road safely. It only had 17,000 miles so it was still relatively new, but letting a vehicle sit for that long can cause a lot of problems. David let me know what were the most important parts to fix and told me where I didn't need to spend so much money on parts and time because they could wait until 75,000-100,000 miles etc. He changed the timing belt under my insistence because I wanted peace of mind that the rubber had not dry rotted with so many years of non-use. He also replaced the water pump, serpentine belts, fuel filter, front brake pads, and adjusted rear drum brakes, flushed and replaced coolant, rotated tires, and changed the oil. He even replaced a missing lug nut with wheel locks (which was my fault from not tightening them enough a few days earlier when painting the wheels myself so he saved a potential catastrophe from happening because a few other lug nuts were loose as well). David is very thorough with all his diagnoses of problems and finds the best way to fix them efficiently without any wasted money or time. Most importantly, I know David is very honest and trustworthy. He's not looking to find problems that need costly "fixes" if they aren't absolutely necessary and that's such a rare attribute to find with mechanics these days. He has won my business for this and any future car work... As well as won my family and friends' business as well because I have recommended him and YourMechanic.com to all of them. Thanks so much David!
