Aftermarket steering wheel install

    I find my steering wheel in my Carry lacking substance since I'm pretty sure if I sneezed hard while gripping the wheel it would break like a chicken bone. Also by adding a 13" wheel would add some more room to the already cramped cab. Has anybody installed an aftermarket wheel like a Grant?? Were you able to find an install kit?? Thanks in advance..

    I've seen "momo's" in some of them but, can't say for sure how they adapted them. It has been done though...

    Do all vehicles use a splined shaft to attach to the steering column?? Is it a universal size?? I've been looking at kits and they all look the same but am wondering if the shafts are different size.

    yeah, they are different. The diameter, the spline count and the taper are varied.

    I found that the wheel is held on with a 17mm nut and has 30 splines. Does anybody know if this will cross-reference with any other brand?? I sent an e-mail to Grant steering wheels so hopefully they can help out but it doesn't hurt to ask here either!!

    Got the new steering wheel on!! Took less than five minutes to install with the kit I got from Grant. The shaft is 30 splines and is the same as a Suzuki Swift, Samurai, and Sidekick and uses the Grant part #4510 and a spacer part #4001. I have $75 in the whole thing which I didn't think was too bad. It added some extra room and feels 100x better than the old wheel.

    I actually set my foot on the edge closet to the door when I drive. My ankle would hurt with the actual gas pedal so out came the grinder and a little welding. Very comfortable...

    Subaru Sambar steering install kit

    You are throwing people like me off by not telling them you have a Suzuki. This kit of yours does not fit on a Sambar. Does anyone out there know which kit does?

    I picked up a grants steering wheel but does anyone know which installation kit is needed for a Subary Sambar?

    I have given all the information needed for everybody to make their own decisions on what they need and how to get it. Yes, it is a Suzuki but with the info given you should be able to figure out what will work. Sorry for any misinformation...
