Anyone know if there are kits to replace the terrible steering rack/system in the c5 vette?

The car would be way better without power assisted steering, it really gives it a numb, dead feel.

Removing the P/S in a car with that amount of weight (and wide tires) up front will make it a bear to drive. Not worth it...

Well, are there any rack options? Something that gives less assist?

That I can't tell you. I just know from having experienced heavier cars on track with the P/S removed, and the amount of muscle required really burned you out quick - no way I'd do that around town. All of the owners who removed their P/S reinstalled it pretty quickly.

I read somewhere why GM's racks are so awful. It has to do with poor tolerances and the need for gobs of assist.
