A good functioning steering
offers besides a safe ride also al lot of driving comfort. Proud owners of
Split busses and early Bays will definitely appreciate this. Durability of the steering box is also determined
by the extent of maintenance and the use of high-quality lubricants. The oil of the steering box is good for lubrication and
protection, though after a lot of use the seals that are situated at the incoming side (steering axe) and outgoing side (pitman
arm), can leak whereby lube oil can escape from the steering box. A steering
box without proper lubrication will get worn out much faster, causing serious
consequences in respect to safety and expenses.
