The Drag Link is a component that links the Pitman Arm on the steering gear with the steering arm on the spindle. When the steering gear input shaft rotates, it causes the Pitman Arm to move back and forth, which in turn pushes or pulls the steering arm through the Drag Link. This movement causes the wheel to turn on its kingpin.
The main function of a Drag Link is to transmit the movement of the steering wheel to the wheels of the vehicle, allowing the driver to control the direction of the vehicle. By connecting the steering wheel to the wheels, the Drag Link helps to ensure accurate and responsive steering, allowing drivers to make precise turns and navigate tight spaces with ease.
Another important function of the Drag Link is to help maintain the proper alignment of the wheels, which is critical for ensuring stability and handling while driving. If the Drag Link becomes damaged or worn, it can cause the wheels to become misaligned, which can negatively impact handling and stability and increase the risk of accidents.
In addition, the Drag Link helps to distribute the forces generated during steering, reducing the stress and wear on other components in the steering system. By reducing stress on the other components, the Drag Link helps to extend the life of the steering system and improve the overall reliability and safety of the vehicle.

A Drag Link typically consists of a metal rod with joints at both ends, allowing it to connect to other components in the steering system. The joints may be Ball Joints, which allow for a wide range of motion, or other types of joints, depending on the specific design of the vehicle.
In addition to the metal rod and joints, a Drag Link may also include other components such as seals, bushings, and bearings to help reduce friction and wear between the moving parts. These additional components are designed to provide a smooth and precise operation, allowing the Drag Link to function effectively and efficiently.
