What is a good price to pay for a Steering Column complete with tilt wheel and the air bag taken out ready to go with the keys? How difficult is it to take out? I've taken out one before on a 1989 F-250 with out the Air bag or any of the extras.
Thank you for you advice and direction.
I don't know what is reasonable to pay, but the local yard got me for $75 for the tilt column, matching keys, non-deployed air-bag, the signal stalk and flasher switch, and the ignition switch.
I got my column out of an older town car though, but I imagine if I pulled a truck column it would have been the same price, because mechanically they're basically the same thing.
I forget if it has two or four bolts holding it onto the aluminum mount, but the nuts are facing down so it's just the matter of taking those off and undoing the bolt that holds the u-joint at the bottom together, and disconnecting the electrical connectors or cutting the wires on the harness side if you want snips.
I can get one out in about 15 minutes if my tools are on the floor of the truck.
