Question about Cars & Trucks
Steering box has play at the steering wheel Side. I can move the steering wheel from one side to the other with the wheels not moving
The steering box has an adjustment screw or bolt which is kept from turning by a lock nut. Loosen the lock nut and turn the screw or bolt
so as to reduce the play in your steering. The adjusting bolt is generally
located on top of the steering box.

You will have to remove the lock plate and the turn signal plastic assembly, from inside the column housing, in order to access and tighten up the three hex screws that have come loose, allowing the tilt column to move side to side. I have done this numerous times, in the mid 90's, when the 80's GM tilt columns started to come loose with age. The hardest part is getting that lock plate off, and replacing it, if you don't have a lock plate puller, so make sure you have one or else get one, as it will save you lots of time and fustration. Good luck.
