The steering mounting in a car absorbs stresses and strains so having good steering mountings in your car is imperative for maintaining responsive and accurate steering. If the steering mountings are worn out you will often struggle to retain control of the vehicle which can be very dangerous at high speeds. Fortunately, getting the mounts replaced is both cheap and straight forward for most brands of vehicles sold in the IE. Also, the task can be handled by any workshop with experience.
One of the easiest ways to determine if your car needs new steering gear mounts is to take it to a local mechanic and have him test drive the car. He will quickly be able to determine if you need replacement parts. Alternatively, if you feel as though the steering vibrates a great deal when the care is stationary, there is a good chance that one of the mounts have worn out. In any case getting the car examined by a professional is always a good idea.
Buying the steering gear mounts can be challenging mainly because there are so many different types with varying prices available. The fact is that cheaper mounts should be avoided because they are made from low-quality parts. Plus, you’ll end up having to get them changed every year which just works out to be a lot more expensive in the long term. That said at car-parts.ie we sell only branded mounts by brands such as Febi Bil Stein and Vaico amongst others. So, you have the peace of mind knowing that the mounts will last you a long time.
