I've recently (past year) spent thousands... on curing the "bump steer"
I have yet to cure it and I'm starting to think its supposed to be this way
althoug my V8 isn't like this (nor is my tomato juice).
I hope someone on the list has an idea.

I was also taken abash at your statement regarding the turning radius.  My 87
%KCSTQ has a tighter turning radius than ANY chevy even one 4 feet shorter.  I
think its amazingly short.  Whats everyone elses opinion.  Maybe yours has a
problem, or maybe I'm easy to please.
