how much modding needs to be done to put it on if any?"


IS300 steering wheel and airbag (stage one) No modifications except if you want cruise you have to use you old cruise control and mod it a bit.

That wheel is exactly what I'm wanting. Did you mod your cruise to work with that wheel? If so what did you have to do?

Yes I used the the cruise from my original wheel. You have to use a dremel and trim the corner otherwise you won't be able to mount it. Be careful, at first I used my skateboard grip tape to shave the corner and expose the internal parts/wires then used a dremel and wrapped everything exposed in electrical tape. Hope this helps.

I think it from either a 00 or 01 I don't remember. Just make sure the airbag is a stage one type. Ebay will be your best bet.

Yes, at the time I had the IS wheel I also had a 01 Celica wheel, which was basically the same wheel only it had perforated leather. The IS airbag will fit.

Go aftermarket.

Cheaper. Feels better. Looks better. IMO

What model has the 3 spoke wooden steering wheels, pre 2001 would be great.

assumng all pre 2001 is just plug and play; as far as airbags.

TIA

SO I just got a 99 GS400 Steering Wheel and Airbag, what else do I need to attach this to the SC400, do I need the adapter for the airbag plug, do I have to swap my cruise controler out from the GS wheel? Any tips

now, the newer airbags, let's say 2000 SC300 steering wheel & airbag, the wheel will fit perfect, but the airbag does't just fit older SC....becuase the yellow plug on the back is different......so do we have to change out the clockspring too?? or what do we do??
