Kit would be something like this (ps this is an example and might not be for your model, so check with model year and other details) http://www.alatmobil.com/power-steer...nd-vitara.html
I sure can try this, but need to search for a reliable mechanic first here in Hyderabad. Will head out this weekend to see who I can find. And then order the part. Otherwise, I will need to head back to MASS. Lets see how it goes.

Thank you very much for this. I believe the steering column / unit / PS Pump Unit will be same for both 2.0 and 2.4 L models, I guess there should not be any difference.

I will PM you in case I need any help post my searching for reliable mechanic here. Thanks a ton once again.

No Sir, they are different and have different part numbers(barring some common items). Do you want part numbers for 2.0L variant??

A special thanks to Sudevji who I contacted and got his advice and help when I was checking out the prospective buy.

.

Congrats Manu! Could you pls PM me your number or share your number so that I can call you? Needed some local info on the GV!

Yes sir, if you can provide the same, I will greatly appreciate.
Here is the vehicle details; I believe you need some of this to accurately identify the part numbers.

Model -: 2.0 AT, Nov 2007

Thanks.

The 2.4L version became available only in July 2009. So they are trying to fool you. Walk away...
