Tips and Recommendations from ECL Engineers
Robust greases here will make steering quiet and extremely smooth.
For power and manual actuators, a low-temperature grease with PTFE reduces wear and noise.
Tight tolerances and the need for low breakaway make this a unique interface for grease.
High temperatures, high loads, and smooth operation are critical factors for steering racks.
Tight-fitting interfaces between ball and socket make this an interesting lubrication point.
