Rack-and-pinion steering is quickly becoming the most common type of steering on cars, small trucks and SUVs. The rack-and-pinion gearset does two things. First, it converts the motion of the steering wheel into the motion needed to turn the wheels. Second, it provides a gear reduction, making it easier to turn the wheels. Simply put, your vehicle's steering system relies on the rack and pinion to make steering feel 'tight.' Bring your vehicle to Big O Tires for a diagnosis of your steering system.

What keeps you from feeling every single pebble in the road, like the Princess and the Pea? Mainly, your car or truck’s suspension system: The springs, shocks and struts.
The suspension has many parts, including the springs, shocks and/or struts, and their connections to the steering and the chassis. It balances the different jobs of steering and comfort for a car or truck.
Shocks resist bounce. Struts combine that with support.
Bounce is a good sign. Come in to Big O Tires for an inspection.
