Question about Cars & Trucks
Just had the rack and pinion put in. now the steering column is very loose and affects my driving on the highway back and fouth work. im not a mechanic, so i have no idea where the nuts and bolts will be at to tighten the steering column. i can move the steering wheel about 4 to 5 inches in any direction. lol thats pretty bad!
If you are having this problem after having the rack and pinion replaced, return to where you had that work done.

Go back to the 'mechanic' who installed the parts.

SOURCE: I have a 1989 Chevrolet
I am experiencing similar problems on an '89 S-10. I have the entire steering column torn apart. There are 4 bolts inside the steering column that come loose and cause the steering wheel to move a little bit. I fixed that problem, but now I'm stuck. I believe there is something that is supposed to attached the shift tube to the gear bowl or the steering column housing, and now thats where I'm stuck. Hopefully you'll be able to tighten those 4 bolts inside the housing and be done with it, good luck. Anyone else have advice?
