Since i bought my 88GT my whole steering column is loose/has play. Left/right and up/down. Its not just the wheel, its the whole column. So my question is... are there screws that could have came loose? Or is there somewhere to tighten it up? I took off the plastic surrounding the column, and wiggled the column, and couldnt really see where it could be tightened. Any ideas? Or do I need a new column?

Thanks

Remove bottom trim on dash, look for four bolts holding the column to the dash fram and tighten if necessary

Easy fix. Took off the plastic, took off the turn signal stem and there were the bolts. They were loose, so pulled them and put some locktite on the threads and back in. Took 20 minutes total from start to finish. I could probably do it again in 10 minutes. My column is 100% wobble free. :)

Thanks guys!!
