My steering wheel is flopping around and loose. i cant pull it off and hand it to my passenger yet but i am beginning to wonder..... Yes the nut behind the wheel is tight. And getting tighter with every beer. It is a tilt wheel 89 Blazer. The tilt mechanism works ok with no slop. It seems to be in the shaft or a bearing. I am going to tear it apart tomorrow. Any one tor apart a newer Column? Are the bearings plastic and break easy or something? Can you still get them? Or do i have to buy a new column. Any info will help. Other than turn switches and ign switches I have never had to fix anything on a steering column.
