Camaro production power steering gear housings, and all service replacement power gear housing, incorporate an internal stop in the form of a snap ring (Fig 9-1). When replacing, or when servicing the housing, this snap ring should not be removed even if the housing being replace did not have the stop. Any attept to remvoe the snap ring will result in damage to the housing.
The snap ring serves as an internal stop for the rack piston when negotiating a right turn. The left-turn stop is incorporated in the housing end plug. End plugs are available in various thicknesses, to contro the gear travel adn are stamped wih degree of turn for identification purposes.
The Camaro steering linkage components (steering arms, and pitman arms) are new to permit usage of a more common steering gear. Steerign columns are new due to a change in the shift levers for the manual transmission equipeed vehicles.
