im not used to driving older cars. all i've ever owned was 4 cylinder
front wheel drive crap, and i was wondering if it is supposed to feel
like the car is 'floating' back and forth while turning and is the
turning supposed to be so loose? the car is an 84 lesabre 2 dr with a
5.0 307. i'm just curious
As far as floating back and forth while turning, I'm not sure, that car
likely doesn't have the pinnacle of suspension technology :-) However, if
the steering has a lot of play in it, it probably means that the tie rod
ends or other parts of the steering system are worn out..

Schedule a front end inspection at Midas .. . they'll tell you
what's what before it costs you. There's no substitute for hands-on. You
might need a camber compensator on the front end .. . pretty common for GM
rwd cars of the last 40 years.
First have the front end inspected
After 20 years parts can be worn out.
Also note that the Le Sabre is a RWD car and the steering is going to
feel alot different ( looser & easier to turn ) than a FWD car.
