Truck Torque Rods
Getting your truck inspected is the best way to get reliable performance during your drives around Indianapolis, Avon, and Plainfield. A significant part to look at during and in between inspections are your torque rods. When you need to get your truck’s torque rods checked, visit the service center at Andy Mohr Truck Center.
What Is a Torque Rod?
Torque rods are a very important part of your truck’s suspension. On one end, they’re connected to the vehicle’s chassis. The other end is attached to the axles. Each one of your wheels has a torque rod linking it to your autobody.
Usually, you’ll find them positioned slightly in front of the wheels that they’re attached to. This is to better handle momentum during braking and acceleration.
Torque Rod Function
A torque rod’s job is to help the suspension maintain its shape. It keeps the axles in line, so you’ll be able to steer properly during your drive without any pulling or shaking. They’re also in charge of controlling axle rotation.
On the body of a truck, a torque rod is even more important. These parts are crucial to keeping that big body in line and helping you stay on course, which is why it’s important to have them checked before every long trip your truck takes.
If you’re able to look under your truck, you should be able to see when a torque rod is bent, cracked, or out of alignment. If you’re not able to see under the truck to visually inspect each one, here are some signs that you may need new torque rods:
- Pulling to one side when you’re driving in a straight line
- Difficulty steering when you’re turning only slightly, such as changing lanes
- A loud thumping sound when you’re braking or steering around curves
- Your truck is riding lower than it was before
