Steering columns have come a long way from the early days of the automobile. Early columns were unsophisticated and little more than shafts to connect the steering wheel to the steering box, although many vehicles featured the first steering column-mounted controls in the form of levers for throttle and spark advance. The button that activates the horn was the first addition to the basic steering column, mounted to the side of the column on some early cars before becoming universally positioned on the steering wheel. In the 1930s and 40s column-mounted manual and automatic transmission shift levers and turn signal switches appeared.

Vehicles were made safer and more secure in the 1960s with collapsible steering columns that would not impale the driver in a collision, and ignition switch/lock assemblies that helped prevent theft, followed by supplemental restraint system air bags in the 1990s. Lights and wiper controls migrated to the steering column where they’re easier to access, followed by more controls, in particular on the steering wheel, including cruise control, audio controls, Bluetooth activated smartphone calls, and even dash display controls, all in an effort to put features right in front of drivers so they can keep their eyes on the road. Tilt and telescoping mechanisms, some that are power operated with a memory function, position the column and steering wheel where they are most comfortable for the driver.

Modern sophistication notwithstanding, the basic function of the steering column and steering wheel is to enable the driver to control the direction of the vehicle. The steering column is attached to the vehicle firewall and dash panel with brackets, and the steering wheel is splined to the column shaft and secured in place with a nut. Because of vehicle design, and the location of the engine and other engine compartment components, there is seldom a straight line between the end of the steering column and the steering box or steering rack & pinion assembly. Therefore, an intermediate shaft with universal joints is used to connect the column to the steering gear and on some vehicles a flexible coupler is used between the shaft and steering gear.

Symptoms of a worn or failed steering column include noise, loose, rough or hard steering feel, and system malfunctions. If the steering column can be moved up and down and/or side-to-side the column shaft bearings could be worn, or the column mounts could be loose or broken. There could also be looseness in the tilt and telescoping column mechanism. Problems in the tilt and telescoping mechanism can also be indicated by the column or wheel not moving to the desired position or failing to lock in place. If there is excessive play in the steering wheel when it is rotated back and forth with the vehicle at rest, the steering column U-joints and/or coupling could be worn. When the steering wheel is turned through it’s range of motion with the engine running and power steering operating and grinding or clunking noise is heard and/or hard or rough steering and poor steering return is experienced, it may be caused by binding in the column bearings or U-joints.

No matter what your repair needs are or what you’re working on, we have the replacement steering columns, shaft assemblies and related components to restore safe, predictable, and easy steering column operation. Our steering column components are manufactured to original equipment specifications. In addition to the major steering column and shaft assemblies we also offer U-joints, couplings, slip joints, bearings, bushings, seals, column locks and lock actuators, tilt and telescoping column parts, shift mechanisms, and comprehensive repair kits that include all parts that are commonly replaced in the area being serviced.

It comes with one page (pictures only) of instructions, fits great, and quick to install. I changed mine to reduce play in the steering wheel, which it has to some degree. You'll need to look up a youtube video on how to swap in your new coupling assembly (a.k.a. Rag Joint) if you don't already know what to do, but it's not difficult as long as you know how to pop out the rivets in the original joint. Didn't take pictures since my camera won't work (Pixel 2 issue), but if I encounter a problem with the joint I'll add an update to my review.
