    steering ratio different on my 95 LT1 than my LS1?

    something feels different with my WS6 LS1 than it did on my LT1.... i know my WS6 corners better than my 95 formy did but the steering wheel does not feel quite as tight as my 95 did..... so does anybody know if the ratio is different or is it just because i sold my 95 5 years ago and i don't remember exactly what it was like?

    The WS6s came with a quick ratio steering rack, also over that many years there would have been changed to pump flow and pressure and bunch of little refinements that change the feel.

    The 95's had the nice thick wheel too. The LS1's have the skinny one that is made for girls. One of the few things I miss from my LT1.

    I hate steering wheel covers. I'll just suffer with it until I decide to get a new wheel.
