It is made by unisteer. It is a completely electric power steering unit. All the sensors and everything are built into it it has a small computer box that mounts up somewhere out of the way and has two power leads going to it

I went this route with power steering on this because the new cars all use electric power steering. There are no Provisions for a pump with these motors. There's guys that are building kits to put power steering pumps on them but I knew we were already going to have enough mess and nonsense going on in the front end that I figured it would be just as easy to go this route

Here's a video I did on my YouTube channel about the steering. Pretty much goes through me building the steering setup for it

Got my speed hut gauges For the van. They plug in and work off the factory harness. Should be a simple install.

Much to come on this in the next few weeks. I am currently laid off from my main job due to the death virus. So I am quarantining myself in the shop for the next couple weeks. Hope to get lots done!

Dang, I thought the shop was your job? I was thinking you went full self employed a while back.

You must be an space alien....I don't see how anybody human could work a job and do the shop work you do all at the same time! When do you sleep, or do you?
