Electric power steering (EPS) and hydraulic
power steering (HPS) - are improvements of the car that gives not only comfort
when driving (especially at low speeds and turns), but also safety, minimizing
the effort to make maneuvers. Modern EPS and HPS are reliable tools for getting
pleasure from driving, especially in urban driving and heavy traffic.
Especially noticeable is the installation of EPS/HPS when changing the steering wheel diameter to a larger one and increasing the width of the tyres. U-turns which demanded the effort of both hands, are
performed with steering boosters “with one finger”. To install EPS on vehicles
that were not pre-installed at the factory, it is necessary to purchase
transition kits and specially modified wiring elements.
No less effect will be given by reducing the number of turns of the steering wheel to a full turn of the wheels. By reducing the gear ratio of the steering rack, we get sharper and more responsive control. The feeling of lethargy and lack of feedback from the steering wheel disappears. Turns that previously required hand-shifting can be performed with a single hand and a single movement with the installation of a sports steering rack, improving comfort and giving more pleasure when driving a car. In combination with the installation of the EPS or HPS management it becomes a real pleasure!
