Hi machan one of my friends converterd his old nissan blue bird to power steering some time back. I am not 100% sure about the current prices but at that time(about 1 year ago) he paid around 15000 rupees for the required parts(used parts). those include the new steering rack, the power steering motor and the other pipe lines required to feed oil to the rack and since the power steering motor is driven by a belt you'll need to buy a new puley(this is connected to the crank shaft and all the belts are connected to this) that can facilitate the additional belt.

First take out the current steering rack and take it with you when you are going to buy the new steering rack and always take a good mechanic with you if you dont have knowledge about these parts. You'll be able to find a good steering rack for about 8000. Always go for a good rack even at a higher price.

And make sure to tell the used parts dealer that you'd bring the parts back if the are found to be defective.Normally they give a gurantee for about 4 to 5 days.

I dont know a good garage for the conversion but please be carefull when selecting one. because the mechanic that my friend hired didnt do the job well and now there is a play in the steering rack. :(

machan tell me where you live because i know a good garage.he only undertake a job if he could do it perfectly and the charges are reasonable too. we took our old nissan double cab to him for an engine overhaul and he did it perfectly. and he charged only about 9000 rupees. :)
