Good steering is an underrated, and often neglected aspect of driving. At KG Truck & Auto in Glen Burnie, MD, we believe in making sure you have the best vehicle possible, whether you’re driving across town or traveling long distance.
There are a lot of components that affect steering, from steering pumps to tire condition. When putting lots of mileage on a vehicle, steering components are under a lot of stress and prone to wearing out. Since they wear out slowly, a driver simply adjusts naturally as the steering worsens. At a point, however, worn components become a nuisance at best, and dangerous at worst.
One component that is often glanced over is your steering box, and the bushing that connects it to your steering mechanism. The steering box is comprised of gears and bushings. As they wear out and deteriorate over time, steering becomes sloppy and unresponsive. Since they typically wear out completely before they fail, it’s an easy part to overlook during routine maintenance; however, a new steering box goes a long way toward driver comfort, stability, and maneuverability.
If your vehicle is feeling a bit loose at the wheel, have one of our expert mechanics take a look. Swapping out a worn steering box is a quick and simple way to vastly improve your vehicle's drivability. For any and all of your repair and maintenance needs, steering or otherwise, trust the professional technicians at KG Truck & Auto, where we pride ourselves on being the best automotive service shop in Glen Burnie, MD.
