How do you know if your car needs a steering box overhaul?

This is a question we are often asked by owners who are having trouble with the steering on their car. If the car is physically hard to steer and driving is a tiring experience, or the steering does not self-centre you may wish to rule out a number of possible causes.

The first thing to check is that the kingpins are in good order and everything is properly lubricated. If the steering is still stiff and sticky then you may need a new steering worm and nut fitted. To read more about steering box overhauls click here.

We are now manufacturing new steering worms and nuts for both the right hand drive and left hand drive Phantom 1 chassis. This means we can overhaul steering boxes on the following cars:

Bentley 3 1/2L, Bentley 4 1/4L, Rolls-Royce 20hp (except early models), 20/25, 25/30, Wraith, Phantom 1 and Phantom 2.
