Volvo S80 Steering Tie Rod
The steering tie rod (axial joint or inner tie rod) is an intermediate steering part that provides the connection between the steering wheel and the front wheels, which transfers the movement from the steering gear to the wheels via the tie rod end or by another words, via tie rod outer. It plays an important role in turning the vehicle to the right and left, to the extent allowed by its driver and road conditions. Axial joint is also an indispensable part of the steering system of the vehicle together with the tie rod end. It has a structure with a ball & socket joint at one end. This mechanism allows the wheels to move up and down and right and left in a controlled manner. This feature allows the driver to maintain smooth driving comfort despite frequent exposure of the vehicle to different road surfaces and impacts. The wheels must rotate at the same speed on a given plane. The tie rod (axial joint or inner tie rod) is also responsible for transfering the initial movement from the steering gear to the tie rod end on the steering side, while the tie rod end takes over the task of the wheel side in this regard. Both parts have a definite word that the wheel is directed in the desired direction. It is inevitable that the vehicle will be out of control while running when the tie rod (axial joint or inner tie rod) is worn out and the desired millimetric balance is not available at that time. Wheels that want to move in an independent manner will be subjected to unwanted forces and tire changes will occur sooner as wear increases. It is an important criterion that all these fine controls and adjustments are regularly monitored, especially when the vehicle is to be moved on another moving part of the vehicle. It is strongly recommended to replace it with a new one instead of repairing in case of doubt because it is manufactured with high precision due to its configuration and because it is in an open position to impact. In this regard, Teknorot has presented the best solutions to our valued customers for more than 20 years and will continue to offer them afterwards.
