Illustration for article titled Manual steering: Will I hate it?

The steering box and power steering “ram” in the Cletus-Vette are just ruined. I’ll be rebuilding (ie. replacing) the majority of the steering this winter but I need to decide if I’m going to retain the power steering. Does anyone have experience with manual steering in a car this size?


I’ve owned rinky-dink hatchbacks with manual steering and they were fine but the Corvette is 3,250-pounds of car with 225-width tires. Will I hate it? I’d ask the NCRS guys but they’re kinda soft. They told me I’d hate the side pipes (love ‘em) and that I’d hate the stiff big-block-spec suspension I’m running.
