We know that it is easier to turn a vehicle's steering (that is not equipped with power steering) when the vehicle is in motion therefore it would stand to reason that turning the wheel while parked or at a stand still would place more stress/pressure on the joints and other components resulting in premature wear.
I have a technical question regarding the additional stress placed on steering components while turning a vehicle’s steering wheel while the car is parked or at a stand still. In your expert opinion will a vehicles’ steering components such as tie rods, ball joints, Pittman arm, idler arm rack & pinion (or steering box) prematurely wear or wear more rapidly if a driver frequently turns the steering wheel at a stand still or while the vehicle is in a parked position versus a driver that only turns the vehicle’s wheel while in motion?
have the same problem?
