    I'm looking for a tilt column to replace a badly worn one in my truck. I've searched and only found one place called columns galore. Does anyone know of a another supplier that sells these? I'd like to compair prices, Thanks Nick

    Have you tried to get a good used one? Around here they run $100 to $125 if it is a junk yard or some guy advertising in the paper.

    However, I just picked up a real clean one out of a 91 K5 for $75 yesterday.

    Ya, I called the local yards and the only one that had one wanted 200 to 225 just for a used column. That seems like a bit to much to me /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif. I was told that not just any column will fit in my year, I'm thinking that I can only use 84 to 87. Thanks for the reply

    There are thousands of those down here in Phoenix.

    I might be willing to pull one for you out here. If you will fork out $125 plus shipping (UPS) I might grab one the next time I am out pulling parts.

    PM me
