Re: Tilt Steering Column



I just took a quick look at the aftermarket steering shaft set up on the Mopar . I did not see a sliding coupler on it. I think it is important to have that as the steering box-frame flexes in comparison to the steering column mount on the dash........................MO

It's always seemed to me that modifying a MOPAR tilt column would just
be more "true to your school" than buying an independent branded one.
Everything I've read about Flaming River has been good, apparently they
take personal interest in the quality of their stuff, so no knock on
them.  I think it's on the Borgeson site that I read that welding on a
steering shaft was dangerous.  I guess that's why their instructions for
their steering shaft coupler say to drill and pin them instead.  So,
which is "better", modifying a MOPAR column or buying an "off brand"
though probably at least as safe, modifying the shaft/coupler/steering
box and also having to change the wiring connectors.  Your car, your
choices, YOUR money! Note: no "n" in Borgeson, though the hyperlink on
the website goes to the right place.

James before you buy the Ididit Column, take a look at a F body tilt column (Aspen etc), much cheaper. You will need a new double D extension to mate to your power steering box and column but they can be had quite easily. Gary H has been on me for awhile to finish my install but too many projects have stopped me at the preliminary set up but I believe it will work well. I think there may be a couple of pics on the 62-65 web site of the hook up from the fire wall. Just a thought.
