Steering Issues
Steering Issues. I bought a 32 sedan with a Gordon Schroeder steering assembly. When the car is sitting on the ground the steering wheel is very hard to turn. I mean very hard. I jacked up the car and the steering wheel is a lot easier. Does anyone know if there is anything that can be done to help with this? I have greased all the fittings and King Pins.

  • Will,
    Just re-do the whole set up. That is if you plan on keeping the car!

  • Thanks for the information. I talked with a friend today and he said they make a multiplier for the schroder set up that helps. I am still checking out all the options.

  • Do you have the option to flip the steering arm so it sits higher and you can shorten the Pitman arm to maintain the drag link parallel as possible even though at a reasonable pitch, there is less bump steer

  • This one is nice .if you notice the common denominator the arm is shorter , read some where the long arm wants to steer faster but makes harder to turn , this is where geometry comes to play, Learned something my self , hope this helps

  • This is an intricate setup to over come having a long pitman arm

  • you are on the right track when you added a hole closer to the pivot point
