    steering wheels from 8-s cavaliers work on your truck, look cool, and can be found at a junkyard easily.

    In three of my other K5's I used Camaro steering wheels out of late 70's vintage cars. Easy change, look great and are nice.........paid no more than $25 for each.......oh yeah, the horn works properly with these too.

    Grant's are nice...........have one on mine (see it on the interior page at the link below), that smaller size is actually an improvement in my opinion.

    I also have a Grant GT wheel, and I think the one inch smaller size is an asset, it feels better and the horn works like a charm.

    My friend just put a newer style Chevy wheel on his '78. It is like mine, has 4 spokes. I think they probably started using them in '88 on Silverados

    <font color=purple>I'll tell you what, I've never had a nicer steering wheel than the one I had in my 89 Pontiac Sunbird......small but thick in some areas, it conformed to my hands just right..........very comfortable. You should be able to find them in junkyards pretty cheap now.</font color=purple>

    Anyone know the size of the newer truck steering wheels? I currently have a Grant 13 1/2 wheel, and I HATE it. It is a huge pain to see the speedo, so I am looking for a new wheel that I can see the gauges easy with, but that will not make it feel like I am driving a semi. And I would rather go stock, and save $$ than go with a 14 1/2 or 15 from Grant.
