Lighter Steering

Question: The Fiero steering reminds me of my grandma's '63 Valiant wagon. Everything is new in the front end so it is NOT a symtom of wear and tear. I am building a 3.2 liter engine so this is a concern. Has any one done a power steering conversion? What about a faster manual steering box?

Answer: There are 2 different ratio rack and pinions for 84-87 Fiero's, one that is "lighter" (actually slower) to turn (non WS6) but takes more turns lock to lock. One ratio for all 88's. You can also get a "lighter" feel by having the car aligned with the castor set close to the minimum spec.
