When it comes to personalizing your Ford F-100, adding larger wheels & tires is always a popular option. The ability to accommodate larger tires is one of the biggest advantages of lifting a truck several more inches off of the surface. The increased ground clearance, combined with the more aggressive stance will allow for more performance-driving opportunities, while helping your pickup stand out from the pack at the same time.
They might be the first things that people notice about your truck, but a new a set of wheels would be rendered worthless if they were not able to follow the commands of the driver. Thankfully, your truck is equipped with a complex F-100 steering system, which will help your new look wheels guide your truck wherever your heart desires. The Ford F-100 steering system features parts scattered throughout the interior, the engine compartment, and of course, the wheel well, and each of them feature their own set of accessories and necessary steering hardware.
Because the F-100 steering system features components that are nowhere near one another, various linkages, which run from the steering wheel and through the engine bay, must relay information from the cabin to the wheels. From the moment that you turn the steering wheel, all of the various gear, shifts, and levers collaborate to promptly send the necessary information to the wheel well, which will then instruct the wheels as to which direction to turn.
Though your factory components have likely served you well for many years, nothing lasts forever, and this especially rings true for your original F100 steering parts. Over time, your steering wheel may feel increased vibrations, even when you’re driving straight at a normal speed. If your steering wheel has become more difficult to handle or if you are hearing clunking noises every time that you attempt a basic driving maneuver, chances are that your F-100 steering system is in need of several large-scale changes. Driving around with impaired, Ford F-100 steering components is dangerous, and can put you, your passengers, and the other drivers at risk.
