There are three bolts under everything that you see. The steering wheel comes off first,then the retainer ring has to come off(it's on the same steem that the wheel is on,there is a tool for that). There is a plate with slots in it that will come off. Pull everything else out carefuly as not to lose any screws or break any wires, and you should see the three screws in a triangle formation. Tightin them & reasemble.

SOURCE: how can i fix the steering wheel, its loose, not

This is a Pre-Airbag vehicle? If so, disconnect the battery and remove the screws that hold the horn button on. Once that is off you can get to the jamb nut that holds the steering wheel on. If it is tight, your steer box is loose and needs to be rebuilt.

SOURCE: power steering drifts over uneven pavement

Lift the front of the pickup and try to shake the wheel. If it moves then a part (a bearing, a bolt or a pivot) of the front suspension is loose or worn out. 
If you can't feel it moving tell to another person to move the steering wheel while you hold the wheel. If the movement isn't exact and immediate the problem is in the steering box. For this specific tools are required - it's better to take it to a repair shop, you definitely wouldn't want to gamble with your safety

SOURCE: power steering and suspension

In a lot of GM and Chevys the intermediate steering link will lose grease and cause a clunk-like feeling while turning and braking. There is a TSB for such a problem. The dealer may still warranty the repair. You can take your truck into a local shop and they'll shake down the front end for about 1/2 hour labor to see if anything is wrong. About 80% of the time a pull is caused by a lateral tire pull or even a bad tire. Check your air pressures as well.

How do I fix play in the steering?


This could be due to a number of causes, as the steering is a chain of linkages or joints:

-steering wheel securing nut loose
-steering shaft universal joint worn or loose
-steering box mountings worn or loose (common)
-tie rod inner ball joints worn or loose (if any)
-tie rod ends worn (most likely)

Jack up the front of the car both sides and secure it with axle stands or some other safe means, have someone hang on to the steering wheel, and waggle each road wheel in and out by gripping it at 9 and 3 o'clock. You should be able to feel the slack. Have another person use a strong flashlight to try to see where this is occurring.

You may need to take it to a front suspension shop as sometimes special tools are needed, and you will need a wheel alignment anyway.

Swerves alot while driving


Something seriously loose or worn:

- steering box mounts
- steering column universal joint or end clamp
- steering box inner ball joints
- tie rod ends
- outer ball joints
- wheel centre hub nut
- wheel stud nuts

A simple test is to jack up both front wheels and place the vehicle on axle stands. Then have someone hold the steering wheel, grab a front wheel at the 9-and-3 o'clock position, and shake it hard in and out. If you can feel slack or looseness, or the person holding the steering wheel can, you have a dangerous fault which should be fixed ASAP.

Loose steering column


You would need a book and the necessary tools to remove the steering wheel. There are bolts in the upper column yoke that probably need to be tightened up.
You can look for videos on youtube that talk about replacing the turn signal switch which also requires removing the steering wheel.

I thought the steering column had lock up and in the process of turning the wheel to try and start the car, i made the wheel loose. you can wiggle it up and down, and side to side. the problem ended up...


not a big problem, most vehicles with any age to them the wheel will become loose like that, it does not affect the steering capability, but if it annoys you and you want to fix it you will have to replace the bearins in the steering wheel.
