Default Steering Column Rebuild - Parts List

Well I had a little vibration noise in my steering column so I felt it was a good time to rebuild it. Plus
I had always wondered what it looked like inside a column. Ignition key was just a tad sloppy as well
so I wanted to freshen it up. Found the 'Rack Preload Spring' was probably what was causing the noise
although its also possible the ignition switch metal rod was laying on the top of the column as well
so I rubber cemented a piece of bike inner tube in that area to prevent that from vibrating just incase.
The lower bearing is exposed to the elements so it takes alot of abuse and needed to be replaced.
It was a pita snapping it into the new plastic adapter but vise made it easier. While I was at it I
installed a new Grant Antitheft system so I don't have to worry about someone stealing the car out
of a parking lot when I go out for a ride.
