Steering wheel very tight after column rebuild

Rebuilt column.

Without the top spring/tolerance ring installed wheel feels right.

Those pieces installed wheel is extremely tight. Some of the plastic from the horn ring on the back of wheel is rubbing off.

My kit didn't come with the rubber cup for under the spring, do I need it? Part#?

Is my wheel being sucked too far down?

Thanks

Re: Steering wheel very tight after column rebuild

The only thing that can cause it is some thing is not put together right either out of order or something is missing. I have had lots of these columns apart and never ran into that problem.

Is the rubber piece under the spring necessary? Mine didn't have it and neither did the rebuild kit
