Car Steering Installation- What You Need to Know

The steering components in your car are extremely complex. Almost every modern passenger car nowadays is fitted with a power steering mechanism. This means that you don’t have to apply maximum effort in order to turn the wheels. However, there are several low budget vehicles (most of which are produced in third world countries) that do not come with power steering wheels. The driver has to apply a considerable amount of effort in order to turn the wheel. However, if your car was damaged in an accident or if the steering system was implicated somehow, you will need to get a new steering installation done.

New Steering

In order to perform the steering installation, the mechanics will first remove the entire steering system from your vehicle. This includes getting rid of the power steering motor and removing all the wires connected within the vehicle. Once the existing steering system has been removed from your vehicle, the company will then install the new components. Obviously, the whole process is quite extensive, and it will take at least eight hours or so.


Car steering installation isn’t cheap, and it will set you back at least a thousand dollars or more. Before you go to get the new steering system installed, you should first get quotes from at least two or three different local companies. This will give you a better idea about the costs associated with the replacement. Obviously, if you have an older vehicle, purchasing a new steering assembly for it may be difficult due to compatibility issues. However, you can purchase car parts from scrap yards in order to save some extra money. Of course, you will still have to pay the labor fee in order to get the steering system installed in your car.
