SOURCE: 97 ford f150 steering column bearings

There is a tool that presses the spring down to allow for the replacement of the clip. It is also used in the removal of the same spring and clip. This is if you are refering to the spring and clip that go on last, after your turn signal switch. If you are referring to the spring that goes around the spline, I would recommend finding a deep well socket of similar diameter than the spring, but big enough to allow the spline entry and use it to depress the spring fully bfore placing the clip

SOURCE: Do you have to pull steering column off to install

Shifter cable? No. It pops on a nipple under dash. Lay on your back looking up under the dash while moving shifter. Do you see the end moving?

SOURCE: what would cause steering wheel

Slop in the actual steering wheel is a result of either bad bearings, universal joints, or the brackets that hold it together. Take the covers off of the column and you should be able to see what is wrong with it.

In a flash / relay block to the right of the steering wheel column under the dash. The bloc is black with a black relay and flasher installed, could be covered in tape depending on the manufacturing plant your truck was built at.
You will need a flash light when you go looking for it.

I had a similar problem. The engine would turn over but not fire up. I was just about to spend a fortune on all the usual things, but decided to have the battery checkrd out first. Saved myself a ton of money. It had the volts but no amps. Put in new battery and It fired up right away.
