Does your bus steering have a tendency to be a bit sloppy?
Part of the problem could well be play in the steering box, but there can also be a lot of play due to worn track rod ends on both the main steering track rods, as well as the drag link.
Instead of replacing each rod end individually, it is much easier to just replace the rods, complete with new ends. They come pre-assembled, saving you plenty of time.
To make the job of adjusting the tracking easier, we have included two 'adjustable' versions of the tie rods. These are interchangeable with the original 'non adjustable' type.
Why? You might ask. Well, if you only have one adjustable rod, each time the tracking is adjusted, all the adjustment is only performed on one side of the vehicle.
The downside of this, is that you will then need to remove the steering wheel and refit it, in the straight-ahead position .... but removing a steering wheel on a bus is not an easy job!
If you have two adjustable rods, the tracking adjustment can be made on both sides of the vehicle ... and hence you won't need to remove the steering wheel. All in all, this makes the job easier for you.
This bundle offer contains two adjustable track / tie rods, as well as a new drag link ... perfect for if your MOT man isn't happy with that sloppy steering.

When can I expect delivery?
We despatch small lightweight orders with Royal Mail, and delivery is normally between 1 to 3 working days.
Heavier orders (over 2Kg) and higher value orders (over £100) are despatched with Fedex couriers for next working day delivery.
Free shipping orders are despatched with the same priority. No difference in level of service.
Delivery timescales for International orders vary by country.
We work very hard to keep all popular items in stock, but due to the number of product lines that we supply, it is inevitable that some back-orders will occur from time to time. Please email if you want us to check a specific item for you.
Pick & Pack
All orders are manually checked, prior to passing through to the warehouse for picking and packing. You will receive an email confirmation of your order. Should any items be in a back-order status, you will be informed at this stage with an anticipated timescale.
When your order is packed and despatched, you will receive an automated email. The email will contain courier and consignment details (with a link to tracking information) as applicable and estimated delivery date.
If your order has multiple items, we often despatch the majority of the order the same working day, with any back-order to follow. However, if we can fulfil within a very quick timescale (normally within a day or two), we may hold the order and despatch complete. We always aim to keep you informed of progress, fulfilling any back order items is always a high-priority for us.
