Steering Rack Boot Information

Bellows is a thin metal tube or chamber with a corrugated (wavy) lateral surface. The bellows is made of brass, phosphor and beryllium bronze and stainless steel.

In most cases bellows is used in pneumatic and hydro automation as sensors that respond to changes in pressure of gas or liquid, acting on the bottom of the bellows (eg, temperature, pressure), as well as flexible pipe connections, compensating thermal expansion. Anti-vibration coupling (bellows) isolates the exhaust system of the engine vibration. They are made in the form of flexible metal hoses, enclosed in a steel webbed shell. Bellows are used in many cars of foreign manufacturing. They are particularly necessary when east-west mounting.

When the speed is increasing, the engine is tilted heavily. The receiver tube is under bending-torsion load.

Bellows also absorbs vibration and tilt of the engine, which increases the life of the whole system, protects the catalyst from vibration damage, reduces the probability of failure of flanges of the exhaust systems, as well as reduces noise and provides comfort to the driver and his passengers! If it is something wrong with the bellows, you can buy a new one in our online shop at reasonable price and with fast delivery. In specialty shops and service centres you will overpay. If you also need to replace tail lights, calliper, you will find them in our online shop.
