Steering Column Repair/loose tilt steering column repair


my 81 chevy C10 pickup has a tilt steering column. I need to know how to tighten it.

Hi Eric:

Sorry about your truck, however this is one of the most common repairs required on that design.  It is a lengthy process and you will need a couple of special tools.  My company provides step-by-step instructions for this exact repair.  Here is the link to repairing a loose GM steering column on our website.

I hope this helps
