Re: [DML] Flexible Steering Couplings: Theory of Operation

Guess which plane wheel vibrations are transmitted through: along the axis (from tie rod to input shaft)....

I only had the flex coupling in place for a couple of hours, but it did indeed reduce steering wheel vibration from pavement imperfections such as the ridges they cut into the shoulder to wake up drivers who doze off and drift off the road (you still hear the ridges roaring, but the steering wheel doesn't shake).

You have made it abundantly clear that you do not support this project. I humbly suggest that you ignore future messages about the subject. Efforts towards positive results are only going to irritate and aggravate you.
