    Default EPS in Alto

    hey guys,
    whats ur suggestions on installing an EPS on 2010 model ALTO. its in warranty of-course and only 3500 km driven. what are the cons of installing EPS in it? would it effect the warranty? would the steering assembly also have to be changed? i have 155/60/R12 tyres and the steering is hard as hell

    besides that, other cars such as jap alto chevy cherry santro also have power steering, although they are small cars with small tyres. handling a car at speeds is not an issue for me Alhamdolillah

    the steering wheels gets hard as u cross 80 Km/hr and becomes lighter at low speeds, bolt on fitting is available for this power steering as it comes in the japenese version.

    the whole steering will come out and the new one will be fitted, bolt on means no alterations what so ever, the ignition switch will be replaced with the one you have right now so there wont be any need of changing the key as well

    i recently went thru a thread here which told a story of a similar conversion in a cultus...i think it was quite cheap some 7-8K..better dig that out ...you can find some more conversion stories here as well....generally speaking they were all sucessful....also check the warranty issues as well after the modification.....

    salam brother.. "Mitthu" reffered me to this post, so here i am
    I have installed EPS in my Alto, Alhamdulillah working perfect.
    Regarding your questions:
    Go for it if you have want a smoooooth and soft steering feel.

    No problem at all like loosing control at high speeds even with the stock 145/80/12 tyres, yours are wider 155/60/12,the steering is extremely soft at speeds less than 60 KM/H and when u reach 60 and above, it gradually starts becoming hard and hence a slight movement at high speeds wont cause any problem.

    Actually your warranty will be finished when u will install power steering because according to suzuki "you have done alteration in your electrical system" .. but i dnt think they would even know that you've installed this power steering because there nothing normally visible.

    Your steering column will be changed, yours will be removed and the other with eps motor will be installed on bolt to bolt fitting. No mechanical alteration at all. You can see the photos of the steering motor installed in my alto in my thread https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/mem...vxr-cng-2007-a

    About the cost, i bet i have installed in the lowest cost. .. i managed to get it for Rs.4000 and installation cost was 1000. And i am Alhamdulillah having lifetime warranty for it due to a very close friendship with the person in bilal gunj.

    If you are in Lahore, you can also have a test drive of my car to have a demo of the steering wheel if you want.

    I hope i have answered all of your questions, if you still need any help, im here..

    Allah Bless

    @hassan

    can you please guide us a bit regarding the wiring of the EPS unit?. I believe the mechanical part is the easy aspect of the installation, whereas installation of sensors/wiring which controls the sensitivity of the steering is a big question mark in my mind. Thanks!
