  2. Steering Column replacement Options

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    I looked many times for this solution, and all I am finding are rebuilding what I currently have. I am wanting to see what other options are available to have tilt and cruise built in. I have a 1968 Camaro. So here it goes. Does anyone know of any donor cars that a steering column can be sourced...

  4. Sensitive steering at high speed

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    Hey all. I just got a sweet new set of wheels and tires. I had an alignment just before putting them on and haven't had one since. It tracks very true and feels good under 60mph or so. After that the steering gets pretty darty and twitchy, and it make me nervous. Am I missing something? How can...

  10. 1967 Camaro Deluxe Steering Wheel- Tilt Column

    Electrical & Wiring
    Hello everyone- i installed an original 67 tilt column and I am having one heck of a time getting the horn to work properly. Can I use the original cancel cam from my non-tilt.* I put a new one that I got from Ricks in (HR-17).* The horn works when you press the button, but when I turn the wheel...
  11. Steering Wheel not centered after tilt column

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    Hey guys- My head is spinning on this one. I redid full front susp including 3rd gen steering box. Car had factory nontilt column. All susp and gear box parts went in smoothly, with steering wheel lined up perfectly with the nontilt column. I've just installed a rebuilt tilt column and wood...
  12. HORRIBLE Steering squeaking

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    Hey guys. Posting on behalf of a friend who owns a '69 Convertible, power steering. When the wheel is cut hard right or left, it squeaks horribly. This happens when stopped as well as in motion. The steering feels fine otherwise, no loss of power assist at any time. We tend to avoid cutting...
  13. Swap 3rd Gen IROC Camaro Steering Box into 1st Gen Camaro

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    This is the story of my journey to having a 68 Camaro that does not steer like a school bus. I know there are many posts on this topic but hopefully this one is a great start!! There are so many problems with the drivetrain and chassis of these old muscle cars, where does one even begin...
  14. Wanted! Power steering with limited space.

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    I have a 68 camaro with a 402 BB and limited space, I'm considering putting the power steering back on it but since switching to the BB nothing old fits anymore. My alternator is mounted high on the driver side, so the box would probably need to be mounted lower for space problems, on the same...

    Does anyone know if the locking plates are different between standard and tilt columns? I have a column out of a 69 firebird and want to put it in my camaro. I cannot get the locking plate depressed far enough to get the locking ring on. Even without the spring and turn signal cancelling cam...

  17. Steering gear replacement

    Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    My car is in the body shop with the front cap off. So, I thought it would be a great time to go from manual steering to power, since everything is in the open. I really don't know what to ask because the car is not right outside in the garage where I can check out everything. But... here goes...
  18. Steering Wheel Dimensions

    Interiors
    Hey, I just bought a steering wheel. To my surprise it seems a little "ovalish". I was under the impression that the 67 Camaro Steering wheel would be perfectly round. My wheel measures about 16" wide and about 15.2" tall. These measurements are taken as if it was mounted with the cars wheels...
