Electric PS

As I'm reading some posts here, I see some of you are running larger 18" wheels on your SS. Correct me if I'm wrong, the SS's power steering the traditional hydro, where as the LS/LT is electric.

So therefore, my question is, will larger wheels cause the electric PS to overwork? And because electric PS is "artificial" in feel, therefore, do you actually feel any different in handling?

Incorrect, every cobalt and HHR built have electric steering. The only time the electric steering may cease functioning is if you put the system under severe load repeatedly with little cool down time. For example a tight auto-cross track.

Sportlines, FE5 struts, shocks, front swaybar, Progressive 22mm rear swaybar, Airlift load assist rear airbags, TWM ST shifter, smoothed TB, LSJ exhaust, debadged, demudflapped, Yokohama AVID Touring P195/60R15's. Soon to come 17x7 Motegi Tracklight 1.0. Best to date 15.402 at 90mph
