QUESTION: You say it requires 2. I see only one. Item 21 and 22 on the 1990 Blazer Drawing. What area is the other? Thanks,Bob

Answer
There are two identical bearings inside the tilt housing.  One you can see on the top and another about 2 inches further inside the housing.  Sometimes you only need one, but othe times, both are bad.  the only way to tell is to remove the housing
