The steering knuckle is a part of the suspension system. It is one of the critical component as it carry varies type of load (vertical, longitudinal, lateral and torque load). Due to this, it is important to produce a great strength of steering knuckle in order to make sure that it can sustain the loads and can functioning well and safe. Generally the type of material and manufacturing process affects the strength of the steering knuckle. Based on literature review, the steering knuckle was designed according to several aspects, for example, the geometry of the steering knuckle. Material selection is also the other factor when design steering knuckle. Currently, there are several type of materials that have been used to produced the steering knuckle for example steel and for the process, usually forging and casting were used. The fatigue and bent of steering knuckle are the main problems, when it’s in service. Regarding this, it is important to choose a great steering knuckle that has good strength. Cast steel, cast iron and ductile iron was selected as the main material in this chapter that will be assigned to the different type of steering knuckle. The effect of geometry and material contribute different analysis result.
