Nissan technicians consistently test steering friction because it is a critical component for understanding and improving chassis dynamic performance. Due to the inaccuracy of a previous machine used, a new apparatus has been constructed to improve the repeatability and efficiency of a steering friction test. The automation and accurate calibration of the test ensures more accurate data compared to the previous machine. This will lead to more accurate decisions regarding the friction applied between the rack and pinion of a vehicle steering system.
