The steering and suspension components are mounted together to keep the wheels firm and intact with the road at all times. They must maintain their lateral and longitudinal positions so that vehicle does not lose control. One end of the track rod is attached to the steering rack and mounts to the frame of the vehicle and the other end attaches to the wheel hub. Both ends of the track rod have swivel attachments called tie rod end which can be adjusted in order to set the required wheel alignment. If the track rod is loose , you may experience a wobbling in the steering wheel or vehicle body, or a thudding noise when driving over potholes.
