Aftermarket steering wheel?

Aftermarket steering wheel?

Answer:

what you need to do is pick the steering wheel you like, turn the box over and check to see if there is a kit full of nuts and bolts and wierd looking stuff listed for your year make and model on back of the box. most of which you will not need in a seperate kit you need to buy too.. Some of the things may help you adapt the steering wheel to your car. Grant is about the biggest manufacturer of steering wheels out there and has a pretty extensive collection of conversion kits. So you have to buy a steering wheel and the hardware kit when you purchase a steering wheel. And make sure that big nut holding it all together is tight. I paid a shop to install a wheel, and four months later while going down a hill getting ready to cross a narrow curved bridge over a steep ravine with trees bordering one side, I heard atink" and the steering wheel came off in my hands at 60 mph. I slammed on the brakes (the same mechanic fixed) thank god he got the brakes right , The vehicle stopped dead straight, on the wrong side of the road, with the tires less than six inches from the edge of 40 foot drop . Some are harder than others, it helps to have done it before, and cars with out airbags are best. Depending on your year make and model of car you may be able to sell the air bag. (you have to look into rules and regulations, since airbags have a explosive in them, shipping is an extra fee, and limited to one company I beileve.
Best Aftermarket Steering Wheel
It's mainly a matter concerning the steering wheel adapter orboss kit" for short. These are sold separately usually and you need one that fits your specific make and model of car. Most aftermarket steering wheels will fit to any boss kit. It's also a lot easier to fit one to a car without a driver's airbag.
It is that way because there is aloose nut behind the wheel
