Powersteering Questions;

I want to get rid of my powersteering,
I've taken my AC unit out, so the only thing I have on a belt is my crank pulley and my alternator.

My powersteering pump is just kinda chillin on top of my motor...
How do I get rid of it?

drain the fluid
remove the belt, pump, hard lines, reservior, cooler, all related hoses and tubing, then loop the lines @ the rack

Doesn't it suck w/o power steering? why would you want to take it out unless your serious about weight reduction. like your on the track every weekend, competing for cash. im not hating, but i just never really understood it.

some people love the feeling of no PS. i took my PS belt off for about a year (even tho its not the same as removing it completely) and i really liked how it handled, except when pulling into parking spaces and tight/low-speed manuevering.

you really like it? hmm. but i couldn't survive w/o the ease of power steering while parking.

Any of you guys notice a different feeling when steering. my car sometimes is "harder" to steer (better). and sometimes its very loose and i can just throw the wheel around. anyone?

I drove my friends hatchback without powersteering...shifting is a lot smoother, because your wheel's not jerking around...drifting is hella easier...and I'm thinking about just taking the belt off.

yea if you just wanna get a feeling for what its like w/ no PS, just take the belt off. it takes 2 seconds.
i wouldn't recommend doing this if you live in a city tho. i live in the boondocks tho, so i enjoyed it.
