steering columns

I was wondering if I take my cruise control tilt wheel column out and buy a non tilt, non cruise column if I could swap the parts over to make it a cruise and tilt wheel? These damn tilt & cruise wheels go for like 400$...

Re: steering columns

Only thing I can think of is you will need to cut a hole in it for the tilt knob. But other than that I'm not sure.

Re: steering columns

I'm of the personal opinion its better to rebuild what you got. I went through mine about 2 years ago and had to replace every bearing in it but its like a new truck once you do that.

Re: steering columns

I don't think it's that easy, the 3 copper tabs that control the blinker cut off are broken, the plastic ring right behind the wheel itself is shattered...

Re: steering columns

The steering column is common to several other Ford vehicles, making it easier to find in the junkyards. Replacing the bearings does make it like new.
