You can but the big question should be, why? It is stock, don't mess it up. I think they drive just fine the way they are, good old Amercian iron.

from a stop, a car without power steering can be hard to handle, but once you get it rolling a little, they get easier.yes, there are upgrade kits available. check online. while keeping it stock has value, if you don't enjoy driving it, what's the point?

Leave it alone. It is what it is. Use 2 hands and 2 feet.


the more you drive it, the more you will get used to it.
