i'll go on record stating i prefer the old style steering setup. easy, to steer, repairs easy to make and will last a lifetime if maintained. i owned a civic and cruiser and the cars were constantly drifting and pulling even tho the alignment was always perfect. then it dawned on me the other day that these cars have rack and pinion too and they don't drift or pull. now that could be due to the smaller wheels or the narrow front track or the outrigger wheelbase. but either way it is a joy to drive a car the drives like the older american cars.
