Wednesday Rewind: Curing Common Issues Of Custom Steering

All Corvettes are possible candidates to go under the modifications microscope, but when it comes to the earlier generation Corvettes, one area that runs the chance of changing would be the steering assembly. Corvettes have always handled very well for their time, but as time marches on, technology improves. One way to update the handling on your Corvette is to utilize some of that modern technology into our vintage ride.

In this Wednesday Rewind, we’re looking back at a story that highlights some ways to make the most of steering upgrades. Some times, the issues we endure are simply due to incorrect engineering or our own ignorance. In this story, our friends from Flaming River and Borgeson helped us illustrate some ways to avoid some common mistakes folks make when they re-design their steering assembly.

Having the proper geometry is important from the steering wheel to the wheels of the car.

Take a peek at this story and you’ll see why some of the details can bring so much more to the modification or create such havoc if they are not followed correctly. While this may not benefit those seeking correct part numbers and originality, it definitely brings forth some hard-earned knowledge from the folks who would know to those who are seeking to make driving their Corvettes the best it can be. There’s always something to learn and this story has plenty for those thinking of ways to improve their Corvette’s steering.

Both companies build components for Corvette steering and they bring their experience to you in this story. They’ve seen it all, we’d bet!
