Poor Man's Power Steering? (mid '50s)


Recommended Posts

I recently discovered that on '55-57 Chevy cars, there was an optional idler arm in the steering system that had roller bearings in it instead of the standard rubber bushing. The result was that the steering work much more freely, especially at lower speeds or in parking lots, etc. Owneres refered to it as Poor Man's Power Steering, though I don't know what Chevy officially called it.<BR>Did Buick offer anything like this in the mid-50s? <BR>-Brad
