    Upgrading Steering in 93-97 LT1 T/A

    So, my steering pretty much sucks. Theres a lot of play, it resists turning from time to time, sometimes its so bad that it feels like I don't even have power steering. The whole system is in shambles...

    So it's definitely time for an upgrade, but to be honest with you guys I don't even know where to start with these cars. If some people could give me some advice as to what to do for my car, I would love to hear it.

    My goals for the steering is for it to just be nice, smooth steering with good responsiveness. We're not talking autoX quality responsiveness, the car is pretty well driven but is still definitely primarily a drag car so all mods need to be made with that in mind.

    The car is a 383 LT1 T/A and had 110,xxx before rebuild and now has 112,xxx.

    Any suggestions, please let 'em loose. Like I said, I'm unsure of where to begin with this one! Thanks for any advice.

    Interesting, this is the second time I have posted this question and I got that exact same answer the first time.

    Is there no other way to upgrade the front steering in an F-B other than eliminating the rag-joint?

    unless you have another problem on the car, such as ball-joints, hub, alignment, etc, that you feel in the steering... not really.

    This is typical of the LT1 system. It's worn out. Replace it.
