Greetings gang!
 
I'm wondering how I can tell if my currently not-running 1975 t-tops Vette has the following features:
 
Power Steering
Gymkhana Suspension
 
Let me know, thanks!
 
Paul

Look under the car just behind the driver side front tire. If you see any hoses attached to a cylinder in that area, you have power steering.
As far as the Gymkhana suspension, measure the front sway bar. If it is 15/16"(I think), it has the Gymkhana set-up. If the sway bar is smaller(7/8"), it has the standard suspension....assuming the bar has not been changed in the past.

I think the standard suspension rear leaf spring has 9 leafs, and the gymkana has 7.  I could be wrong.

FE7 suspension also had a rear sway bar.  As for rear spring, it is a 7-leaf spring but there is also a spacer that some judges want to incorrectly count as an 8th leaf.
