Default Re: Power steering for Gypsy.

I bought a new soft top Gypsy four years ago, and use it often in the city, with 23k kms on the odo now. I love the car, but for most people the challenges in using it are, in descending order:
1. Brutal suspension at the rear
2. No AC
3. Power steering
I have 215 Yokos on it, and I don't twirl the steering with the base of my hand on the steering wheel on any car I drive, even the power steered ones. All one has to remember is to start to move the steering wheel once there is some motion, even inching, and then manual steering isn't a big issue at all, if one is able to live with items 1 and 2 above. I live with all three, because I don't want to do anything that will affect its brilliant reliability till date.

Agree with Sawyer on this. My first Gypsy was stock one. Except the bone jarring ride i was ok with no AC and no PS. I sold it and then got a 2010 model. It already had an after market suspension and AC so that was sorted. Till date i never felt the need for a PS. As mentioned above, once you start moving its pretty simple.
