How It Works

The car’s steering column is the same column as fitted to the car originally, but with the addition of an electric motor connected in the middle. We use specially machined joints to connect all the sections together making it much stronger and it mounts in the car normally with an extra bracket on the base of the motor. Where possible we attach this to the pedal box or bulkhead for extra strength. Our “easysteer” systems still retain the original fittings (including the ignition barrel, steering wheel and column surrounds) and all looks as it should with all the wiring and control boxes easily hidden away under the dash. All our systems are fused by a 35/40-amp maxi fuse to the motor and a 5-amp inline to the controller and all units include simple plug and play wiring instructions (note all systems are 12-volt negative earth).

Our easysteer EPS power steering is the perfect answer to the age-old steering problem. We understand the needs of our customers and their cars, this is why when we are designing a vehicle steering set up, we firstly make it stronger than most of the original steering, then we hide the system either under the dash or behind the shrouds as much as possible, so it appears untouched, ensuring once the system is fitted, it will outlast and outperform all your original steering components and as it is maintenance free it won’t rot or wear out like the an old hydraulic set up.

easysteer power systems are a fit and forget system, nearly all your steering components remain unchanged so your rack, track control arms, track rod ends, and column universal joint are standard, none power steering items meaning no extra cost when its time to replace. One of the real advantages of electric power steering over hydraulic is that in the highly unlikely event of a power loss, the worst your steering will do is to revert back to how it used to be, unlike the old systems if ever you lost power steering your car became undriveable.
