My last three trucks were GMC's and I think they steered ok, but were subject to the same wear that any steering- suspension system endures. I had to crank #### out of the torsion bars to carry 800 lb plows without doing a nose stand... All I can say is I'm sure glad to have a solid Dana axle under my front end now. And it doesn't freakin wander either. If you are worried about the reliability of electronics in modern vehicles then you have a lot of worrying to do, all makes are stuffed with them. Why did I go back to Ford after 14 years of GM's? Because the new GM's are lower to the ground than ever, squat like a dog when you throw a little weight in them and it seems to me that all they care about is how soft the ride is and how fat they can make the seats. I still give them credit for good engines and transmissions though.
