Steering Rods, Boots, & Doublers


Maintenance Tip!
How do I know if my steering rods need to be replaced?

  • Nose wheel steering is unusually sluggish
  • One or both sides offer little or no spring resistance to steering input
  • More than 1 1/8" of free travel is present in either steering rod
  • The aircraft pulls to either side during taxiing
  • Inconsistent steering or rudder rigging
