Galling in steering column

I've got galling in the steering column when the steering wheel is turned too fast. Service manual does not discuss this. Anyone know of a fix?
TIA, Hahnderosa

It's just the lower bearings or can be the upper ones two.
they wear out and klunk and growl. I'm not sure if you can replace them or not. I would just look for another column.

Commen fix is to spray the heck out of the bottom of it with a thick spray oil. You have to do it every 6 months or so. You could disasemble it and clean and grease it if you want the extra work.
