    is it a tilt wheel? if it is there are 3or 4 bolts inside the colum that need to be tightened you have to take the colum apart to get to them

    What he said, remowe steering wheel and blinker assembly and you will find torxhead bolts. I had that same problem last week.

    Yup, its an easy fix to tighten them up once you get the steering wheel off. Its very common on 4wd trucks cause alot of people use it to get in and out with.

    If you want to do it yourself do a search on here. Someone here has a very detailed description on the whole process. Sorry, I can't remember who. I found it, it was by Bigburb. Search for loose tilt steering
