Turn to Delphi for Aftermarket Steering.
Integral to its ride, handling and safety, a vehicle’s steering system must be up to the job. We make sure it is! How? By applying the very same OE principles to our aftermarket steering portfolio. That’s why all our parts undergo rigorous dimension, material, durability and performance tests, helping to ensure they perform just like the OE. It’s also why we offer expert training and technical support. Giving you everything you need to repair steering systems safely, efficiently and profitably.

> Check all of the mounting nuts and bolts to be sure the problem isn’t being caused by looseness.
> Inspect any visible parts such as bushings, ball joints, steering linkages. If you see any damage it will need to be serviced or replaced.
> Shake the steering wheel quickly, turning it left and right at quarter of full circle. There should be no excessive free play or knocking noises. If the car has power steering, do this with the engine running. Check rack and pinion type steering mechanism, as well as steering boots. If any of them are damaged, the part needs to be replaced.
> If the car makes noises while turning, it could be a sign of a worn ball joint. If the ball joints use a grease nipple, they can wear out if not lubricated properly or are in prolonged use. Worn ball joints should be replaced.
> Replace the entire ball joint where the rubber boot is split, cracked, damaged or even missing. Never replace the boot only as this can seal in any damaging substances the joint has been exposed to, resulting in increased dust and corrosion.
> If the suspension bushing is worn out (located at the inner end of the control arms), steering problems and abnormal tyre wear may happen. Replace the bushings in this case.
> Always tighten components to their correct torque as specified by the VM in its loaded position, not wheel-free, to prevent additional stress when the vehicle is lowered to the ground.
> Check the wheel alignment after replacing any steering or suspension component to prevent excessive tyre wear. The new parts will have less play and set the wheels at a slightly different angle.
