Steering Options

Post by elwood » Fri Jun 12, 2020 10:39 pm

I have a 1984 with manual steering. I've made a lot of mild performance upgrades, and now I'm at the point where I'm happy with the car's overall driveability, except the steering. There's too much "play", which I can't seem to eliminate by adjusting the box. I'm considering my options:

1. Have the manual box rebuilt (no underhood tear-up)
2. Swap in a power box and run it in manual mode (quicker / higher effort / no underhood tear-up)
3. Swap in a power box and run it in powered mode (quicker / lower effort / some underhood tear-up)
4. Change to rack & pinion (???)

I have 205/50-15 performance tires on the front, so parking lot steering effort is fairly high. I use the car as a summertime daily driver, as well as performance weekend driving.

I'm interested in hearing your experiences and recommendations.
