Steering Linkages

TRW Aftermarket

The steering linkage is a crucial part of the steering system, connecting the front wheels and enabling them to move in a functional way. Given the importance of the steering linkage, it is critical that all cars are fitted with high quality parts, which TRW can provide to help you offer great service for your customer.

With TRW Aftermarket steering linkage you get:

  • Improved performance of tyres which lowers the chances of vehicle-roll
  • More than 4,800 parts to choose from
  • Corrosion resistant stabiliser links made from glass-fibre reinforced plastic
  • Reduced weight and damping vibrations
  • Two-seat design for tie-rod ends which means no spring and therefore longer life

 

Huge selection of high quality steering linkage parts


Our standing as an industry leader in steering systems is highlighted by our huge product range, covering more than 4,800 parts and 92% of the European vehicle parc. This means you can trust TRW to deliver exceptionally high standards of performance and safety. The benefits of choosing a TRW steering linkage includes:

  • Guaranteed safety improvement
  • Continuous advancement through outstanding research and development
  • Original equipment (OE) quality
  • Extreme testing process
  • Expert training and guidance

 

The importance of steering linkages


If the steering linkage in a vehicle isn’t working properly then the occupants could be in danger. The chances of vehicle-roll during cornering are increased by a failing stabiliser link due to possible over steer, while a broken stabiliser link can also knock out or tilt away. As well as generating an annoying noise while the vehicle is running, a damaged steering linkage could affect the performance of the tyres or braking, which also has the potential to be dangerous for the driver.

 

Full range of steering linkage products


With a wide and varied product range, we cover a huge selection of requirements, which is why we’re your one-stop solution in the aftermarket. Manufacturing all sorts of linkage products from Tie rod ends to control arms and ball joints, we have developed forged aluminium, forged steel, nodular cast iron and stamped steel to give you lightweight parts for efficient and flexible performance. You can find out more information about our steering linkage portfolio below.

 

Stabiliser links


With corrosion resistant stabiliser links made from glass-fibre reinforced plastic, you can give drivers safe, efficient and strong performances at all times. The use of such high-quality materials allows us to reduce the weight and damping vibrations of our stabiliser links. And where glass fibre material is unsuitable due to space restrictions, we’ll supply proven steel steering linkages.

 

Tie-Rod Ends and Assemblies


Our tie-rod ends use a two-seat design as standard, which means there is no need for a spring, which will extend the life of the part. A 24-hour Salt Spray Test means that they can be trusted at all times, but to be sure we’ll also perform Dynamic and Elasticity Tests as well. TRW Tie Rod Assemblies are all adjustable to the needs of each individual chassis, and with a large selection, we’ll even provide a full OE standard repair kit to go with them.

Other products in the portfolio include:

  • Front and Rear Toe Links – offering better straight-line stability
  • Centre Links – ensuring an efficient, straightforward connection with the idler arm
  • Idler Arm – providing pivoting support for the steering linkage
  • Pitman Arm – converting the angular motion of the sector shaft to linear motion
  • Bellows – allows expansion and compression of a joint

 

The highest steering linkage standards imaginable


Our promise to all customers is that we will produce parts of the very highest quality. With an independent institute carrying out tests on our steering and suspension parts you can have peace of mind that the experts trust our products as much as we do. And with tests carried out by the fka in conjunction with the ika, you can have complete confidence that TRW steering linkages will be the very best on the market.

 

Practice makes perfect


The key to producing such market leading products is all in the intense testing process that we carry out on all of our steering linkage parts. Visual checks help us to assess quality variances where we examine physical performance for the following:

  • Break away torque
  • Rotational torque
  • Radial elasticity
  • Pull out force
  • Endurance test

 

Advanced research for continued improvement


More than 80% of parts sold from TRW into the aftermarket are made in TRW plants, which means we have the experience and knowledge to produce performance-enhancing parts. This experience can also be used to develop and improve our steering linkages, and we set ourselves the target of being the first to market with all new parts. We have achieved this, for example, with steering linkage parts for the following models:

  • Ford Fiesta VI
  • Mazda2
  • Ford Kuga
  • Fiat Linea and Bravo
  • Vauxhall Insignia and Meriva B
