HISTORY: I have an '82 El Camino. 400hp/350 GM crate motor w/ fuel injection. Patriot headers w/ flowmaster duel exhaust. New radiator, shocks, brakes and rear springs. The 14" rally wheels/tires have been changed to P245/60 R15 BF Goodrich T/A Radials. It drives and handles well around town however, when driving on the freeway or + 50mph the steering is way to touchy. The car drifts to the left and right too easily. I always have to adjust/play with the steering wheel too often. The steering gear (box) was adjusted and it made the problem worse. The ball joints have been checked and they are fine. Left outer tie rod was replaced. Conclusion: More adjustment and work on the steering and possibly never get it right OR: Change the front end to rack and pinion so I don't have the float issue and steering adjustment problem.
have the same problem?
