hello everyone!
I am new to 'TAI'. I need some help regarding my gypsy!
I bought a '94 maruti gypsy a few days before and i wanted to install a power steering set up. I know it can be done as I have seen it in many gypsys before but I don't know where can i get it! I asked a dealer in mumbai, and he said it will cost me 30K! I have read on the the net that the Koyo p.s kit costs around 8K. Anyone has any idea as to where can I get it??????? along with the price?
thanks!

i would say go for electric power steering as it won't eat your engine power and require less maintenance

Sir, I tried to search for the electronic power steering but couldnt find it. Is it possible to ship the kit from Delhi and get it fitted here locally in Pune? If yes, can you please find out the price of the kit as I am interested in getting it.

Another way you could do is that visit Hyundai service centre and ask them if they have any totalled car and pay them little bit to give you powersteering motor or ask them place where they send there totalled cars

Re: Power Steering For Maruti Suzuki Gypsy MG410W?

ok sir , will try to find it here first and if i dont, then i ll let you know. Mean while, i was searching for the side mirrors. The mirrors installed ryt now are of no use as they vibrate and tend to move and they are not much wide so as a result of which they are not of much use. I am looking for the ones which have that vertical bar which is to be fitted on the door and on the top. I dont know what they are called. I have seen them on many gypsies, on the net. I guess trucks have them. It would be great if any one knows what they are called!

thanks.

Electric motors may be costly than hydraulic , and you could get good mechanics to install hydraulics than electronics , since E- power steering need a cut off , and only expert electrician could do this , believe me , we tried in a zen , it almost worked , but it failed . Ditched the process.

Gypsy has circular ball steering ? or rack ? i am confused -:stupid:

Bit of work , both powered could be installed !
