Just like it says my 85' Fiero GT wanders around the road. As long as I can remember it has done it but it is getting annoying. One minute it will pull slightly to the left then ill turn or brake or something small like that and it will pull a little to the right afer. It isn't that bad of a pull but like I said, annoying. Could the problem be the stabilizer on the steering rack? I am not sure what that exactly does. Any help appreciated. Thanks

The steering dampener is to take some of the shock out of your hands when you hit a bump.The wandering can be caused by low tire pressure, the thread pattern of your tires, worn suspension parts, or a misalignment of your wheels.

many thing can be causing what your feeling. but - most of them are in the rear end. bad cradle bushings - or maybe even broken cradle bolt - or even cracked/broken cradle bad a-arm bushings sloppy struts - which is very likely loose axle nut alignment tire condition rear tie-rod ends rear balljoint
but - my bet is: really bad rear strut + poor alignment

what i came across on my 87 coupe was a cracked pinion gear bearing, and a bad rack bushing. the pinion gear gets no grease unless grease fitting holes are drilled. also check to see if the front cradle bolts are tight.
