Help needed 68 steering column

975 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Evalladom
My steering column (non-tilt, non power) seems to have some friction in it. I have removed it twice, changed the bushings, etc. But it looks like the inner rod is not concentric with the outer tube and it rubs on the bushing (pls see picture). Besides the friction that I can feel, the steering wheel shudders when I make any abrupt movement with the car, like going over the curb or dropping the clutch.
I cannot see how to align the rod inside the tube. Please provide any ideas or help on how to do this. I have already moved it up and down as much as the bolts holding it to the dash allow to no avail.

Did you happen to see if you installed the insulator inside the bottom of the column tube?

Thank you very much for your help. I installed it together with the new plastic bushing
Thanks for your response. I have already installed new plastic bushings in it. But since the steering box is fixed in position and apparently there is no way to adjust the outer tube position at the dashboard, I am lost!
