Whether you use your ZForce for work or play, you are constantly putting strain on the machine. Though most of it is built to absorb rough use, the rack and pinion on your ZForce will fail sooner than later. Hauling weight and offroading puts a lot of stress on the ZForce rack and pinion which leads them to failure.
Is it okay to drive with a failing ZForce rack and pinion? To be safe when riding your ZForce, you should avoid riding it when you notice symptoms of rack and pinion failure. You will not be able to control the rig as you used to which could spell trouble.
There are a few symptoms that you need to look out for to pinpoint a bad ZForce steering rack or a bad ZForce steering pinion. First off, it'll be hard to control the rig as it will tend to wander off. Sometimes this goes unnoticed when offroading since you are already working hard on the steering. So, look for steering fluid leaks or a burning smell. ZForce rack and pinion problems often start with fluid leaks and the high temperatures will result in a burning smell as well. Finally, you will hear grinding noises when you turn the steering. Keep an eye out for these symptoms and get your ZForce rack and pinion fixed before it becomes fatal.
