View Full Version : Power steering.

How many of you are running without it? Is there really a need for it?

I drove an Elise without it. I thought the drive was much more accurate/fun.

Any other replies to this? I'd like to know.

I drove without it for a week, once your moving its ok but backing up and slow driving is horible. Makes you much more tired.

Doesn't it put more stress on the rest of the steering system/column?

I did it. You get used to it.

Yeah, it's not bad you pussies...:D
I did it in an Alltrac. For over a year.
Steering felels more precise..
But it is a bit of a pain when you're stopped.

seriously i think its more dificult in our cars all the fluid leaks on mine i think its rack and pinion so money hasnt fixed it yet but parallel parking, u turns, and drivethroughs can be a pain. the alltrac should have more weight distributed to the back so it would be easier like my bros 240sx he removed the power steering on purpose but it feels like cake compared to my celica... just remove the belt and try it out for a while but i wish i had power steering again

Cars that came without PS from the factory drive differently than cars with broken PS. The racks are different.

I wonder...is there any non PS racks that would work on a Celica?

Hm.. damn. I guess I may just put it on, It just looks cleaner without it. We'll see. Thanks for the advise.

It has MORE weight up front.
Same as a GTS PLUS turbo and WAAAAAAAY heavier transmission....

That didn't need too much thought. Why would an AWD be lighter on the front??? :lolhittin

Well, seeing as you have a heavy ass contraption in the back that allows you to drive the rear wheels.. there is added weight, but I think with the added 50 pounds of the turbo assy, and the added 70 to 100 pounds of the tranny, there's a little more in the front.

Hmm, I have tried it once just rolling down a slope, sheesh, talk about heavy :o
