    I would think hydro assist is ok everywhere. My father in laws 75 F250 has factory hydro assist. If I remember right, didn't some mustangs come with it as well? I'm pretty sure my parents old Delta 98 Olds had it too.

    I believe hydro assist is 50-state legal. It's full hydro that is illegal in most states. I know in CO, the law requires mechanical steering.

    yep its legal since there is still a mechanical connection in the steering.
