    Ok, my steering wheel is wobblying bad at the column (where it tilts) I'm pretty sure I can figure this out (but thought I ask), assuming just take it apart and tighten some nut, but any of yall ever had this problem and fixed it? What needs to be done?

    You have to tear the column down pretty far... and then you will see 3 reverse-torx (at least that is what they were in my truck) bolts that secure the cloumn at the point where it tilts. Take the bolts out, and lock tite them, and put em back in tight. This way you won't have to visit them again in the near future!

    Also, don't use the wheel to clib into your rig! Once you do tighten up your column, you will cringe everytime someone climbs into your truck using the steering wheel!

    Hope this helps!

    YEA! You made it home. We were worried about you.
    As for the column, scan down a bit. There is another post about this and BigBurb posted some great dirrections on how to fix it up. You can rent the tools ta Autozone to do the work.

    I don't need no damn shop manual, I got a pornographic memory.
