One of the key factors in ensuring that your vehicle maintains its maneuverability is making sure that your steering gear is working properly. In vehicles with conventional suspension or parallelogram linkage systems, the idler arms are the components that should be checked when steering issues arise. Idler arms work with the pitman arm to support steering linkage by pivoting and control steering for the right side of the vehicle. Faulty idler arms can cause problems such as wandering, loose steering, and tyre edge wear. Fortunately, periodic inspection of your idler arms will help you be proactive in your vehicle’s steering system maintenance.
