Not in my truck but my dads work truck. Its a 1990 K3500 RCLB, the steering wheel is really slopping, but not in the actual steering but in the column. Its almost like the tilt on it is screwed up, he nevers uses the tilt but was wondering if there is a bushing in there that goes bad? Just started about a week ago. Has play up and down and also side to side

You can rent one from Oriellys, Autozone, Advance auto, etc. Its really simple. Just spray a little wd 40 on the splines before you start pulling, and a little on the puller's threads while pulling and it should pop right off.

this is a halfway decent write up, I've repaired these before, if you've done it a bunch of times, its only a 15 minute job :crazy:


you'll need basic hand tools, the pivot pin puller (if tilt column), steering wheel puller, the lockplate puller, and an 8mm inverse torx socket
