PostPosted: Mon Jan 13, 2003 5:25 pm 
Just took delivery of my first swift, but no steering wheel. Does anyone have a aftermarket steering wheel they have gone with that they have been happy with?<br>I want to buy something nice, but dont want to go overboard. I figure aftermarket is easier since stock is probably hard to come by. I also wouldnt mind about an inch or so smaller in diameter.<br>Thanks for any advice<br> <p></p><i></i>

Hey,<br>I actually like the 3 spoke '89-'91 GTi wheels...they are 14" and chubby....but I saw back in '89 when Suzuki offered a Dino leather wrap 350mm wheel with a suzuki horn button and always wanted one.<br>Ended up getting a 350mm Momo Top Power with gray insert and have to pick up a suzuki horn button.<br>Hub adapter is ~$75 new (CDN) and still available...so you're looking at ~$350 for a new leather wheel, hub and horn button.<br><br>Whatever you do....just don't go wood!<br><br>TGstring<br><br> <p></p><i></i>

APC is now selling the same setup aftermarket steering wheels for the Swift/Metro/Tracker/Sidekick models. It originated from the same manufacture that I was buying them from when approaching this list and you can now purchase them from PepBoys at 69.00 US Dollars each, and a 2-inch billet spacer for 15.99. Same design as the Momos with either a flat bottom or circle. <br><br>The colors are yellow/black, red/black, blue/black, gray/black, and just plain black. <p></p><i></i>

Pep boys sounds like a good deal ! Thanks godzuka, and everyone else. I will probably check pep boys first, and if they look like decent quality I will buy it.<br>thanks again everyone. <p></p><i></i>

hey does this mean sidekick/tracker steering wheels fit on the swift ? & is the 2" spacer to move the wheel farther back for more comfort, or to match the stock wheels position ? <p></p><i></i>

Most Suzuki steering wheels will fit the Swift, I put a Swift GTI steering wheel on my Samurai when I had it. <p></p><i></i>

Tracker/sidekick will only require the 1-inch spacer and APC GEO adapter will work. <br><br>The Swift/Metro will require a two-inch adpater due to the fingers hitting the wiper arm when turning. <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :hat --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/pimp.gif ALT=":hat"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <p>--------------------------<br>Steven St.Laurent <br>2003 Dodge Hemi 5.7 Ram Quad (FOR SALE)<br>2000 Dodge Dakota Hemi (Some idot hit the vehicle)<br>2000 Roush Ford TT-Mustang (1 of 2 beta vehicles)<br>1999 Chevy Astro (A.K.A.

Hey, I went to pep boys and sure enough there were the steering wheels like you said. The 2" spacer is separate from the adaptor kit, so with the steering wheel it all cost 105 bucks, a great deal in my opinion.<br>thanks again! <p></p><i></i>

About 5 years ago i was given a Samauri with one of these wheels. Its been on every Suzuki since! On my Sprint(1.3l SOHC conv.) it seemed to be in too close to the dash making it cramped for the legs! <p></p><i></i>

I just put a Grant Signature Series wheel in my Metro the other day. It looks out of place being red in a black car with gray interior. But I'm not done with that one yet. :lol:

Anyway...... I bought the wheel a couple of years back, brand new in the box from a guy for $5.

I used the Grant hub adapter 3510. Got it at Pep Boys. I do believe there is a hub adapter made by APC that has the last four numbers of 3510. I am thinking this is the same one as the Grant hub......just less expensive.

My steering wheel sets in the same position as stock since the steering wheel itself came with a "spacer" made of stamped steel that the wheel attached to with 5 allen headed, countersunk screws.

I had to do some creative drilling to get the turn signal cacelling cam to work with the Grant hub. Works great.

I will get some pics posted if possible since right now I rely on the local library for internet.

will that 3510 kit work for the 1994 Geo Metro XFI ?

I have a nice mahogany wheel on my 74 Thing. I also have another security kit (removable steering wheel kit) so I was thinking to install it on my metro and then I can swap the wood wheel between the two cars.

alas it says its only good for 89-91 metro but 89-94 swift

Does anyone know for sure if this will work on the 94 Metro?

Am pretty sure it will fit for sure 89-94, it has 2 split pins for the turn signal cancelation that you need to fit carefully at the correct height.
When you install it fit it carefully and check the pin lengths and operation before completing the install.
if the pins are too long they will score the horn contact on the column.

my experience with the grant 3510 hub adapter is that the kit comes with the split pins which are required for the mk2 cars. the same holes that accept the pins will also mate with the white plastic nubs on the canceller for the mk3 cars (no split pins used here.)

i've used the grant adapter on standard mk2 and mk3 metros, swift gts, and with an air bag clock spring delete and minor mods, on the mk2 and mk3 verts.

Long shot, does anyone know about the interchange of steering wheel between UK Cappacino models and the more common Swift/Sammy wheel spline?
Full disclosure: I'm hoping that a Cappy wheel may fit a Sidekick.

If you have an air bag nobody makes a wheel, you would have to remove all the air bag stuff and try the adapter or an older stock wheel to see if it will fit
