A column-mounted electric power-assisted steering system has few parts that contribute to the steering feel experienced by the vehicle driver. The steering rack guide bearing (or yoke bearing) is a key component in this regard and must deliver a consistently low friction for the lifetime of the vehicle.
Whilst some yoke designs offer line contact between the yoke liner and the steering rack, causing high wear, NORGLIDE® yoke solutions offer a greater contact area. This means lower bearing pressure resulting in a significantly reduced wear rate. This allows a smooth, low friction steering feel for the driver, delivering a satisfying drive every time.
