Your rig's power steering system is part of what makes your vehicle “modern,” and without it, it can feel like you're Fred Flintstone trying to navigate his Rock-Bottom vehicle. If you find that you're exerting more force than necessary when turning your Jeep's wheel, it may be time to take a look at your power steering components, and to replace the bad with the new. At 4 Wheel Parts, we sell all the parts you could possibly need to put the power back in your power steering, including the power steering line o ring and other power steering hose parts.
What Does the O-Ring Do?
Your rig's power steering hose o ring may be small, but it serves a big purpose. In order to work, your power steering system needs fluid. The o-ring sits in place to prevent leaks, much like an o-ring on a plumbing system. Without it, the hose would leak out any fluids you put into your system. If you notice that your rig is leaking but all other systems appear fine, it may simply be because you need a new Jeep power steering hose o-ring. Fortunatley for you, that's a quick, easy and affordable fix.
How to Tell When Your Power Steering Has Gone Bad
You'll know when your power steering has gone bad because you won't be able to take the smooth turns like you could beforehand. Weakened power steering can seriously put a damper not just on your trail adventures, but on driving in general. When your steering has gone bad, you'll need to exert actual force when trying to make a turn, which is no fun for anyone. Fortunately, the fix may be as simple as replacing the o ring for your power steering hose. If it is, pick up the o-ring you need today from 4 Wheel Parts for less than anywhere else on the market thanks to our low price match guarantee.
