The steering rack is part of a system called the rack-and-pinion gear set. The importance of the rack is to ensure that when the steering wheel rotates, linear motion for the wheels is achieved. Moreover, the use of gears in this system enables a driver to use only a small amount of energy in turning the wheel. The number of turns for a steering wheel that are needed to turn the vehicles between extremes depends on the gears. These gears provide the steering ratio. This ratio is obtained by dividing one steering wheel revolution (3600) by the degrees turned by the vehicle’s wheels in that revolution.

 

A high ratio means a high number of wheel revolutions to turn the wheels but with little muscle power. This slow response is appropriate for heavy vehicles. However, light cars such as sports cars usually have low ratios and a high response. This ratio is suitable for these cars because they can turn at very tight angles. Some vehicles usually have steering ratios that vary. Therefore, a car starts by negotiating a corner by responding slowly and then increases the response at the end of the turn.
