Rack and pinion steering systems are the norm for most modern, everyday cars. The technology is nothing new, but it has made its mark in the automotive world. This rings true in the hotrod and racing worlds as well. Rack and pinion steering setups are simple and easily adaptable to virtually any chassis or custom build you may find yourself working on in your own garage. Rack and pinion steering assemblies take many shapes and forms, some easily recognizable, some not so much - however, they all do the same thing - they make wheelin' our favorite cars and trucks effortless.

 

By design, rack and pinion assemblies are very, very simple. In its most basic form, it is a pair of gears that converts rotational motion (steering wheel input) into linear motion (wheels turning left or right). The pinion gear is a circular gear design and attaches to the end of your steering column. The other gear, housed inside of the tube portion of your rack and pinion assembly, is the bar gear that converts that rotational motion into a linear motion. At each end of your rack and pinion, is a tie rod that connects to your spindle/hub assembly to move the wheels left or right.

 

In the aftermarket world, we see the 2 most common type of rack and pinion assemblies; powered and manual versions, finding a home on everything from old school hot rods to oval track race cars.
