Nissan Skyline Steering Wheel Bosses
Steering wheel, pretty simple device right? It takes your inputs and moves a steering shaft, steering rack, some other bits and pieces, and eventually moves the wheels/tires. Most all of the early cars - R32 do not have airbags. There are a few cars with airbags, but not many. Most of all the R32, including all the GT-R have Hicas, or four wheel steering. Now the really tricky part, Nissan decided to change the zero position of the Hicas sensor. We see this fault/error often. Very often with the R32 GT-R. People do not know or understand that two different bosses are required depending on if the car is early or late.
If you install the wrong boss, or install the steering wheel off a tooth, on your Nissan Skyline GT-R with Hicas, you will often get a fault code/Hicas light after about 5 minutes of driving. The Hicas thinks that you are constantly turning, and will turn the light on. Does your Hicas light turn on after five minutes of driving?
More Hicas four wheel steering information is available here.
All of the R33 GT-R steering wheels had an airbag on the drivers side. 1996 up cars had driver and passenger airbags.

As you can see, there are at least a dozen different hubs. You can obviously make nearly anything work, for any car, but you will have to make some compromises to do that.
