Steering and Suspension

Steering and Suspension

A big rig is more than just a vehicle—it’s a complex organism, a testament to human engineering. Like the intricate workings of a human body, each part has an importance to keep the whole entity operating smoothly. Among these crucial components are the steering and suspension systems. These systems, much like the human skeletal system and central nervous system, provide support, control, and feedback, allowing you to navigate your truck effectively and comfortably on your long hauls.

Keeping it in top condition with the latest in state-of-the-art parts and technology, Transport Diesel is uniquely suited to meeting your service needs.

The steering system of a heavy-duty truck consists of several key components, including:

  • The steering wheel
  • Steering column
  • Power steering pump
  • Tie rods
  • Steering gearbox

These components work together to convert driver input into precise wheel movements, allowing the vehicle to navigate corners, turns, and lanes.

Like most systems in your truck, it is essential that all of these components work together. A key reason for this is safety while on the road. Safety relies on the prompt and accurate response of the steering system to your commands.

If one of these components were to fail, then this could lead to delayed or inaccurate steering, putting yourself and others on the road at risk as you lose the ability to avoid obstacles or maintain control.

Transport Diesel has the expertise to work with all of these critical systems.
