"Save up to 60% compared to Dealer MSRP and receive the best quality Parts in the Automotive Aftermarket."
Steering Pros LLC was incorporated in the State of California on December 7, 2015. We have more than a decade of experience in the Automotive Industry, and we've leveraged supplier relationships to position ourselves as the go-to distributor of Manual, Hydraulic and Electric Steering Racks and Gearboxes online. Our inventory is curated from the best machine shops (called "Rebuilders") across the United States, which are chosen based on quality, Warranty, location and cost, in that order. Our Rebuilders recondition end-of-life Parts (called "Cores") using new components in place of worn or damaged components, resulting in products that meet or exceed factory OEM specifications. We are focused primarily on the Do-It-For-Me ("DIFM") market by offering a Limited 12-Month / 12,000-Mile Parts Warranty with an optional 12/12 Labor Guarantee (add $100) to Dealerships and ASE® Certified Repair Facilities only. Contact our USA-based Customer Service Team with any questions or concerns.

We Play Favorites!
Replacing the Rack & Pinion is a complicated repair, so it should be done by an ASE® Certified mechanic with expert knowledge of Steering components.
The Best Warranty
Our Racks and Gearboxes include a 12-Month Limited Parts Warranty. Our Labor Guarantee (add $100) is available to approved ASE® Certified facilities only.
Not all Steering Rack Cores can be remanufactured. We examine the physical condition of every Core for structural damage and/or missing components that may slow down the reconditioning process.
The "Tear Down" Phase. External components of the Steering Gear such as Boots, Clamps, Inner Tie Rods, Hoses and Fluid (‘Hard’) Lines are removed. All wearable internal components such as Seals, O-Rings and Bearings are also removed.
Components are bathed in a high-pressure solvent bath. Abrasive blasting (‘sandblasting’) of the Rack Bar is sometimes used to achieve the desired surface appearance. Both the Steering Rack and Pinion and P/S Pump Shafts are polished, Hard Lines are tested for pinhole leaks, and Port Threads are inspected and chased.
New Seals and O-Rings are installed, including high-temperature Teflon® rings (if necessary), and Bearings are lubricated and adjusted. The Inner Tie Rods, Boots and Clamp assemblies are reinstalled, and the Pinion is clocked (‘centered’) to OEM specifications.
A computerized-simulator measures hydraulic pressure ranges of the reconditioned Rack, its fluid control, and power assist to verify the Gearbox won’t leak.
#6 Packaging & Delivery
All Steering Gears are fastened to cardboard inserts using zip ties, then placed inside of double-wall corrugated packaging boxes (measuring 49" L x 10" W x 7" H) to protect the Rack Assembly while shipping.
How do we source our Steering Gears?
Our Gearboxes are curated from the best machine shops (‘Rebuilders’) in the United States, who recondition OEM Cores to be identical in fit and performance compared to the original Part.

How Do I Know When It's Time To Replace The Steering Rack?
Commonly reported symptoms of Gearbox failure include:
- Vibration — Jerkiness or loose feeling due to excessive play.
- Loud Noises — Clunking sounds while turning or driving over speed bumps.
- Wandering — The wheel requires frequent adjustment to drive straight down the road.
- Fluid Leaks — Worn out or deformed Seals may cause the Steering Rack to leak hydraulic fluid from the Pinion Tower or Bellows.
- Lack of Assist — The wheel turns easily in one direction, but with difficulty in the opposite direction. The steering wheel may also have trouble returning to center. In this scenario, intermittent loss of power steering is possible and may be accompanied by a grinding sound.

All orders are shipped Ground) unless expedited shipping is requested and paid for.

Are installation instructions included with the Steering Rack or does a mechanic have to install the Part?
Steering Pros LLC resells complete, fully-assembled Steering Rack and Pinions. Due to the highly–technical nature of replacing the Steering Rack, we recommend that the installation be handled by an automotive professional. Many newer vehicles require specialized tools and/or equipment, plus technical knowledge of the vehicle's Undercar, to properly diagnose and service the Steering System. And since most cities require that you follow specific environmental procedures for reuse and disposal of Power Steering ('P/S') fluid, we request that these Steering Racks be installed at an ASE® Certified Repair Center.
