The purpose of a steering system is to control the direction of the vehicle by applying effort to steering wheel. Steering system is one of the most important aggregate is automobile where mass reduction scope are more. In this paper study and review of structural optimization of steering yoke assembly is carried out. it has been found that there are two way of design process that structural optimization can carried out. In early stage of concept generation, optimization should be used to develop a structure, in later stage shape and size optimization should be used to fine tune the structural from optimization and carried out experimental to validate the component.
