The steering box uses the motion of your steering wheel to prompt your wheels to turn. For quiet, trouble-free steering, replace your faulty steering box with a cheap, high-quality replacement from Car Parts 4 Less.
The steering box (or ‘steering gearbox’) sits at the end of the steering shaft. Older rack and pinion systems contain a worm gear that looks like a short bolt, as well as pegs or rollers. The car turns when the worm gear moves a rod that prompts the steering arm to move your wheels. Modern power steering systems use a steering box with fewer parts. The engine powers a pump that sends high pressured oil to the steering box. Turning your steering wheel opens valves inside the box, allowing oil into the cylinder. This causes a piston to turn your wheels in the appropriate direction. No matter what type of system your car uses, it is vital that the steering box stays in good working order. Is yours worn or broken? To find the perfect new steering box, enter your car's details on this page.
