Check your tie rods, and your steering box also check for pressure loss in the power steering

What is the horn relay location for 1979 trans am?


The dual horns are located between the radiator and engine...the horn button controls the circuit...you must remove the steering wheel to gain access to the horn button spring assembly...pre-air bag so not a big deal to remove the steering wheel on your 79 T/A...hope this helps.

First check your tire pressures and make sure they're up. Then you might consider changing out your steering stabilizer (steering shock) and have your front end (components checked)

Replacing front shackle 1983 jeep cj7


Shackles are pretty straight forward. Remove the existing bolts, change the shackles and reverse the procedure to install. Good idea to change the bushings while you're in there if they are at all questionable. It's best to do this with the CJ in the air, supported on the frame and use a floor jack under the axle to lift/lower the spring in/out of the shackle, one side at a time.

You said stock height, does that mean you have stock suspension aswell? If I were you I would install stiffer shocks all the way around and add or replace the stock front stabilizer bar with a stiffer one. You may also consider installing more rigid leaf springs in the rear.

Hope this helps
