    Option #1: You would have to drop the rack and disassemble it and re-gear it for closer ratios. I dunno if it can be done.

    Option #2: Look for a closer-ratio rack, if they exist.

    Option #3 Use more throttle to bring the rear around

    First of all I think you mean DECREASE. Second no. It is strange but my 99 EC Z71 will turn much tighter than my moms 00 Caddy Deville even though the truck is several feet longer....
