Power Steering

Recommended Posts

Been thinking about Power Steering, what if you were to remove the current gear box and replace with 1 or 2 linear actuators and replace the steering wheel with a joystick? Would that be too weird?

Maybe mount something on the steering shaft to activate a switch to drive the actuators.

Not for me. I want/need a steering wheel. There are electric units on some of the ATV now and a friend of mine who has a V8 powered sandrail which has a slick fluid unit. Also at one time I had heard Joyner was going to offer an electric unit as an option on the Trooper. I think the electric unit is the best option as we have a full fledged alternator system on the Trooper, no electric power shortage.

I did a bit of research on electric steering units a year ago after somebody wanted one fitted to their UTV & found that Unisteer Performance Products with their universal electric steering kit was the one to go for. The enquiry I made was for a Commando 4 seater so you will have to send in a few measurements. The direct link is:

Pretty pricey though, but just like electric fans they don't steel power from the engine.

Cheers Mike.

    • 2016 Joyner T2 1100cc 4 wheel drive

      I have a 2016 Joyner T2 that is giving me problems engaging in and out of 4 wheel drive.  I have read some older posts that address this issue on some older models, but can't get any of the older pics to open for a good explanation.   I have not taken anything apart at this point.  Hoping some mechanically savvy Joyner owners can help me out. Thanks

    • Joyner Trooper Power Steering

      I had been wanting to install power steering on my T4 for years so I went to the salvage yard last weekend and bought a complete column (minus airbag) out of a 2009 Nissan Versa for $125 with the ECU. It was a fairly simple install. The long shaft that fits to the Joyner steering rack actually fit perfectly into the Nissan column. Had to weld up a U joint on the Nissan column to make it a straight shaft and fab up one simple bracket. Connect power and ground plus a switched 12v and now I can steer with one hand!

    • 250cc longer wheel studs

      Hey there folks, we are now stocking longer and stronger wheel studs for the 2500cc line up, including models from Coleman, HiSUN, Benchee, Massimo and others that share the same parts. The fronts are pretty easy to change out as the hubs are aluminum, but the rears are a little harder since they are made from steel. Really helps with different rims, racing, or striped out poor quality OEM versioins. These are rated at 10.9
