Any particular reason?

I've disabled the power steering on my Civic. The only time I notice is in parking lots. Granted, it does require some effort then.

Some guys with disabled steering will cut the power steering lines near the rack, T them together, and the third leg will vent to atmosphere. This is supposed to reduce steering effort since you aren't trying to push the fluid around in a closed system.

I don't think I'll bother since I hardly notice.
