Hey guys.

Was just wondering if you guys had any tips to make the EB steering less assissted and have more feel and be more communicative. I know that falcons in general have overassisted steering racks.

So I was thinking of a couple of options:

REplace stock steering with smaller custom steering
New Steering Rack Bushes
New Steering rack
Allignment
new suspension parts

ALso, from what ive heard, its possible to adjust steering sensitity by a J3 if i'm right?

Speed Sensitive Steering didn't come out till the EL range of cars, the NL Fairlane Ghia, for example.
If you want more feel to the steering, fit 235/60R15 tyres to a 15x7 rim/mag.
If your still not satisfied with that, then get a wheel alignment with a little more caster.
Thats all I got....... :|

yeh im planning on buying 18-19 inch wheels anyway cause i feel it makes the EB look much better with modern XR6-8 rims. so I'l get wide tyres with those?

Or is it better to stick with stock turbo blades and wide tyres

I have the original mags that the car left the factory with, 15 x 7's, on my ED.
AU onwards wheels will not fit to EA - EL.....the offset is different, they will hit on the upright of the stub-axle assembly.
My car is fitted with EL XR6 springs.
