Textbook Problem

List the four main components in a parallelogram steering linkage and explain the purpose of each component.

To determine

The name of four important components in the parallelogram linkage, and the purpose of each component in the linkages.

Explanation

Given Information:

A parallelogram linkage.

The pitman arm used to connect the linkage, to the steering column with the help of a steering gear. The steering gear is placed at the base of the column. The transmission of rotational motion of pitman arm that it receives from the gear, to the linkage results in the linkage to move right or left to direct or turn the wheels in the desired direction. It also fulfils the purpose, to adjust the height of center link, which confirms that the tie rod can be parallel to the control arm movement and prevents unsteady toe setting or bump steer.

The idler arm is also called as a killer arm or idler arm assembly...
