My C5 Road walking issue

I have a 2000 C5 base FRC.It has pretty high mileage since it is a daily driver. Recently it has started to road walk in the heavy traffic lanes. I had a shop check the front end for something worn and they found nothing wrong. So I figure it may be something to do with a worn bushing somewhere. My steering is still tight. Has anyone had an experience with this, and what should i look for as a possible cause. Thanks

Since nobody appears to be on this forum anymore except spammers may I offer something I've discovered with my C-4.

Some heavily traveled roads develop wear ruts that really feed back into the steering wheel. I've had mine push and pull left and right on certain roads in my area, probably looks like I'm drunk. I do not feel this issue in my F-150 on the same roads.

Don't know if this helps, don't even know what "road walk" is but nobody else is going to offer any advice, hell of a forum, eh?

You may also try checking the rear end, since it has a floating rear end and may have some worn parts in the rear tracking assembly, maybe try a four wheel alignment, I had one done over the summer, three months after I purchased new tires and it really woke the handling up !
