The steering and suspension systems in your classic Chevy work together to make sure that your ride stays stable, that its handling remains controlled, and overall, that the quality of the drive is as smooth as can be. Both are made up of many parts.
Most classic Chevy suspensions (both front and rear) are made up of chasses, shock absorbers (shocks), struts, front and rear coil springs, and anti-sway bars. Together, they support a vehicle's weight, reduce its body roll, keep its wheels turning properly, and maintain alignment for braking and turns.
The steering systems in most classic Chevy models, on the other hand, whether they are power or manual, are comprised of a gear box, a center linkage, a Pitman arm, an idler arm, and tie rods. Together, they work with the steering wheel to give wheels freedom of movement while keeping them as stable as possible. The most common type of steering system is rack-and-pinion; its assembly works with bellows boots and tie rods to turn rotary into linear motion. This makes turns better and more accurate. Some classic Chevy cars and trucks these days either have power steering or support conversion to it. This kind of system makes turns even easier and more precise.
If you're looking to repair or upgrade either system, you've come to the right auto parts store.
