Steering and chassis components of any car are among the details that are responsible for safety on the roads. Components of the steering, which include the axial joint, at all stages of design, fabrication and installation are subject to special care performance. They must ensure 100 per cent driving safety for passengers and driver in all situations on the road, which can occur with or without influence of the driver. Together with the part in the form of a rod axial joint connects components of the steering gear of any vehicle. Sliding surfaces of the axis ring and the ring of the axial joint housing together with the axis of the bearing form an angle.

Therefore, they are mainly used for axial loads, but within certain limits may be used also for combined loads. Rings of the axial joints are made of chrome steel, hardened and polished. Plastic coating of the axial joint slipping area is reinforced with a glass fibre and applied by injection directly into the housing-ring. The slipping area of the axis ring is chrome-plated with hard chrome and coated with lithium grease. The joints are detachable and this allows you to mount their components separately.

The range of possible operating temperatures of axial joints should be from 40 degrees below zero to 75 degrees above zero. However, during the limited time they are able to operate at temperatures up to 110 degrees above zero.

If you need to replacement the axial joint in your car, do not waste time for shopping or garages. Refer to our online store. Here you will find a huge selection of tie rod axial joints that meet the guaranteed quality for any car brand. And you will be pleasantly surprised by our prices and short delivery time in any convenient location. In addition to axial joints in our online shop you can buy such car parts as damper bearing, brake force regulator, independent ball-joints and coolant hoses.

Diagnostics of the tie rod axle joint

If you carry out this item’s diagnosis, it is recommended to bring an assistant. So you have to move parts of the running gear, and your partner has to feel axle joints, which will locate the existing gap. If you seek professional help, they will certainly take advantage of a play detector when determining a fault. With DIY checking it is required to simulate different types of motion on this unit. It is easy to discover an unfastened joint during a normal inspection. To move the parts against each other, use a gas wrench and a tire lever. Diagnosis should be done carefully to avoid damage to the rubber boot.

Replacement of the tie rod axle joint

In the process of a DIY replacement it is extremely important to consider the vehicle manufacturer's instructions and maintenance instructions. First, you will need:

  • lock the rear wheels of the vehicle;
  • lift the left and right sides of the car to unload the stabilizer;
  • unscrew the suspension joint bolt (under the suspension strut);
  • remove the joint pin;
  • mark the position of the joint;
  • remove the nuts securing the axle joint;
  • install the new axle joint, adhering to the made earlier mark;
  • tighten the nuts on the joint, and the clamping bolt (the latter torque is 65 Nm);
  • adjust the angle of the wheels (wheel alignment) at a service station.

Mandatory replacement of the item is required every 100 thousand kilometers.
