what other steering columns will fit in my '80 trail duster? its a 4x4 with auto on the column and tilt. would one from a mid eighties model possibly work if i can't find one in a '80?
thanks a lot man! after i read this i ran out and looked at my trail duster and sure enough,two more plugs. well,i'm off to the jy to grab that column i guess!trailduster440 said:You need a 79-80 column, 78 is different. Tilt and non-tilt wiring should be the same. Look at your tilt column wiring at the switch under the dash. Trace that back a foot or so and you should see where it plugs into the standard non-tilt wiring. The tilt columns I have looked at; all worked this way. I believe this was because the tilt column was made by gm.
You may be able to repair your tilt column depending on what's broken. I think tilt is a neat option so I would try to repair or replace with another tilt column.
