Post NO PS on AWD (newbie question)

On a subaru with awd, is it perfectly fine to take out the power steering column/hose... etc. without causing ECU errors or such??

You mean take it out and drive around w/ it? I read somewhere that it wouldn't be good. Forgot why, but that's what I read.

Well you could, but there is little point. Also you need to link the return and pressure line together on the rack so that it still contains fluid. Then you will have increased wear on the steering shaft u-joints. You MIGHT get a whole HP from doing this.

Look at it this way, the WRC car still uses a PS rack.

I have already disconnected my Power Steering lines from my '94 and is a big chore if you're trying to steer at low speeds and wouldn't recommend it. Of course if you have arms like Arnold, that wouldn't be a problem. Me, on the other hand is just a poor, sad, little girly man.

BTW, after trying, I just hooked it back up.
