Default PS on Manual Esteem

Hello,

I have a 1996 Esteem which runs like a dream. I want to do the following

Fit Power Steering
Bolster or change the Shocks

I have the following Questions

Can power steering be fitted in to an Esteem.
How much will it cost.
Where in Bangalore can I do it.
What kind of Shock Absorbers should I go for. I would Like to go for gas shocks for better dirvability. Please also update where can I buy the stuff for Shocks and what are the things that have to be changed If I am overhauling the suspension

Thanks in Advance

With Best Regards
babu

if you are using the car for street use only, please do not put konis - they will be quite uncomfortable.

Default How is gabriel Shocks

Hello

Actually I am getting a quite heavy 'TAK' sound coming from the behind of the car when it is going through a dip at about 50 Kmph. Some time i heard a similar sound from the front left side of the car too. I am assuming that the problem will be of Shocks. Can all the punters here help me.

I would Like to know how is Gabrieal shocks for Esteem.
Also want to know where will I get them.
I would also like to raise the height of my esteem marginally. How can I do it.

Awaiting the help of all the Heavy weights out there
