    New Car Center (Drag) Link & Repairs in Hamilton

    What does the drag link do?

    Car Drag Link Repairs Hamilton

    In some vehicles the drag link is an important component in your car’s suspension/steering system. It connects the steering gearbox to the pitman arm. It converts rotation of a pitman arm to a steering arm and eventually to tie rod links which pivot the wheels and allow for proper steering.

    The center/drag link is an important part of your car’s suspension and if it becomes damaged, the overall safety and driveability of your car will be affected.

     

    Causes of a damaged center/drag link:

    Over time, the ball joint in your car’s center link can become worn and damaged, affecting the operation of the component. When this happens, the center/drag link may need a replacement.

     

    Symptoms of a faulty center/drag link:

    Wheel alignment is incorrect – A faulty drag link can cause your car’s wheels to become improperly aligned. This can make your car naturally pull to the left or right while you are driving.

    Vibrations while driving – You may notice that the steering wheel, base and wheels of your car are vibrating. This can cause the entire car to wobble while you are driving, especially at higher speeds. If your car is shaking, it could be due to a center/drag link in need of replacement.

    Poor handling – A bad center/drag link can cause your car to become difficult to steer. The car may struggle with corners, or pull to one side while you are driving (as mentioned above)

    Increased tyre wear – When your wheels aren’t aligned correctly and your car is becoming difficult to steer, the distribution of weight on the tyres will be affected. This will cause them to wear out much more quickly.
