Talking The Bronco now has tilt steering.

Well went to see CheapTrick on Thursday night with my wife and friends, decided because it would be a late night my friend and I would take the friday off and do some work on the Bronco.

The job de jour was install a tilt steering column, took about four hours and the added bonus was the steering is much smoother and precise because as we found out after removal the original steering column it has a damaged upper bearing and one of the signal return pins was broken off.

The body and the frame may have gone to Bronco heaven but a lot of the mechanical s continue to live on

Do you use the tilt at all? My 79 has tilt retrofitted into it, and I just leave the steering wheel in the same spot all the time.
