Corvette Fever editor Ronnie Hartman has an 84 Corvette. We have seen it a few times. When asked why she drives it so sparingly, she complained that the steering seemed heavy and uncertain. We were harping on her pretty hard at last years Corvettes at Carlisle about not driving the car, when Chris Petris of the Corvette Clinic overheard the conversation. He immediately jumped into the volley, saying, Theres a cure for that! He knew what we were referring to and mentioned that the 84-87 Corvettes can all exhibit the same symptoms.
Ronnie was relieved to find out it wasnt just her imagination and that it could be fixed. In fact, its amazingly easy to cure this handling problem. Everything you need is already installed on your Corvette; youll just need to pay for a new alignment once the swap is complete. Heres what it takes to calm the nerves on your early C4.
