Idler Arm Parts
Golf Car Catalog offers idler arms, idler arm bushings, and idler arm rods for use with many EZGO golf cart models, utility vehicles, and personnel carriers. An idler arm is used when the steering box is located up underneath the front chassis away form the front axle. The steering wheel is turned, which transfers this movement down the steering shaft, and into the steering box. The steering rack is pushed in or out of the steering box by this movement. The steering rack connects to the idler arm which has idler arm rods or tie rods, connecting it to each wheel's spindle respectively. As the steering wheel is turned one direction, the idler arm uses this motion to push outward on one side's spindle while it pulls on the spindle for the other side. The resulting motion equates to turning the golf cart to either side.
