    I own an 86. Silverado K5 and the steering wheel is loose, the column is cracked where someone tried to steal it, the cruise and delay wipers are not working. Is there another model that is interchangable with the 86. I use a 92 chev astro van at work, and I really like the column and wheel. There are some cars like the Monte Carlo and Grand Prix which are abundant in the scrap yards. I understand that I have to completely tear down the column in order to tighten up the 4 screws which accounts for the wheel being loose. Seems like it may be easier to just replace the whole column. Is there interchangable years, or do I have to stick with the same year, model etc.

    Thanks for your input.

    For the most part, all internals are interchangeable on the GM vehicles that are that style. However, different years, you will have different wiring, etc. Length is the main issue when dealing with another application. If you are trying to save yourself work, you would do best to find one that is exactly the same year and from the same style truck.
