yeah, shud be at that cost. the pump can be either saga's, iswara's, wira's or even lancer's but the steering rack must be of the exact similar model to suit the fitting.

other than pump and steering rack, it will come with pwr strg fluid tank, oil cooler pipe and input as well as output pipes. that's why it is quite costly.

main reason why Saga LMST sells like hot cake is becoz it comes with PAS as an option.

other previous Saga/Iswaras with standard PAS were the 1.5I (Istimewa) specs including the CARES EFI version.

2 things to take note before installing is
1. insist on warrranty of at least a week, better if can get a month.
2. after get warranty, then check daily for signs of leak. when driving and making a turn, make sure the steering turns back to centre automatically. is the steering hesitate to centre itself, sumthing is not rite.

to spend about 1K on a 12-15K Iswara is not very wise when u plan to change to newer car very soon. used car dealers dont bother much whether ur car comes with PAS or not and they wont increase their offer of trade in value.
it will work with private buyers though; but 10 years old car do not attract much attention.
if u plan to keep the car for another 2-3 years (or forever), then i strongly advise u to do so.

* PAS = power assisted steering
CARES = Clean Air Regulated Emission System

we help each other lah. i know everybody here appreciates one another.

but to drive a saga/iswara with PAS does give you a new feeling. like driving a completely different car with different handling characteristics...

dont forget to change to bigger tyres too to improve ride control.

my dad just installed a power steering in his iswara. Total cost rm1100. The rack is rebuilded, very shiny and wraped up nicely when we got it. The pump is recond, don't know from which car, but look good.

rm1100 includes all labour and other parts, and a one month warranty, although the foreman say the warranty is just there for fun, cuz he know it won't breakdown anyway.

already a few weeks, everything is just fine, beside 1st gear felt like not as much power to launch off the line anymore.
