Re: Steering column replacement
In the event you didn't see my post at Austin:
More often than not, if it's a tilt column, the tilt part has nuts/bolts that get loose. Usually all that is needed is to re-tighten them. this is the case with most tilts that have a lot of play in them, if that's the case.
You didn't mention what the actual problem with the column was, so I'm just taking a wild guess, since it is a very common one with these year models. It's mostly due to people using the steering wheel as a grab handle when entering the truck. It can get so bad that it actually won't hold it's normal position, and falls all the way to the lowest position if it's not addressed. I *think* it's like 4 nuts to tighten, but I could be wrong. I hope that's it, it will be much easier and cheaper than messing with another columm.
