“Our customers save up to sixty percent (60%) off Dealer List and receive the best Warranty in the automotive Aftermarket.”
Steering Pros, LLC was incorporated in the State of California on December 7, 2015 by JR Draper and a private investor. With more than a decade of experience in the Automotive Industry, we’ve leveraged supplier relationships to position ourselves as the go-to wholesaler of Manual, Hydraulic and Electric Steering Racks online.
Our inventory is curated from the best machine shops (called ‘Rebuilders’) across the United States. These Rebuilders 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 the worn or damaged ones. This saves our customers money as well as being environmentally-friendly, and results 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 24-Month / 24,000-Mile Parts Warranty with an optional 24/24 Labor Guarantee (add $100) to Dealerships and ASE® Certified Repair Shops only. Our Parts Catalog offers overnight access on 58 SKUs across six (6) vehicle makes including Acura, Nissan and Toyota.
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 be 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.
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.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do we source our Steering Gears?
A: Our Steering Racks are curated from the best machine shops (called ‘Rebuilders’) in the United States, who recondition OEM Cores to be identical in fit and performance compared to the original Part.
Q: Which payment methods are accepted?
A: We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, PayPal and PayPal Credit. For PayPal orders, a payment request will be emailed to you promptly to complete your purchase. All sensitive personal and credit information is transmitted via 256-bit Secure Socket Layer (‘SSL’) and then encrypted into our payment gateway provider’s database. Upon receipt of payment, your order will be processed and shipped. However, if we do not receive confirmation from PayPal that funds are received, we cannot guarantee that your order will ship same-day (even if placed before 3:00 PM).
Q: Are instructions included with the Steering Rack?
A: No. 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.
