my 69 vette seems to have a very quik steering ratio!
someone said there is an adjustment on the steering box?
I need to slow the rate down a bit cuz the wife is all over the road.

power steering
I too can move the wheels lock to lock in 1/2 a steering wheel rotation.
something is very wrong if that's true. Does it feel like there is a lot of play in the steering?

no play at all and its tight.
car has a complete duntov suspension and car was run at limerock raceway and a few other tracks years ago.
Im thinking that the steering gear has been modded and ill need a stock replacement?

haha, that's cheating not giving us all the details at the beginning :laughing:

If the steering is tight and you're actually going from lock to lock with 180 degrees of rotation of the steering wheel the steering gear must have been changed.

There should also be two holes in the steering knuckle where the outer tie rod end attaches. If you use the hole farther rearward it will slow it down a little bit.

Do you have pictures of the steering box and linkage? I would like to see them if you do.

Stock boxes are all the same ratio. Some aftermarket ones are faster. You have something that was modified and by who knows who. I'm in New Haven if you need any help.
