As a random off the wall but kinda related note; This is also one of the big "headaches" of kit and replica car builders. Even really good builds often have to deal with the Fiero Saginaw steering column, which tends to stand out.
Yep. I'm starting to see this issue posted by guys building the lambo replicas - i hear it goes the whole way back to some of the countach kits
. I don't think i've EVER heard or seen anyone use another steering column, although i'd really like to have a cadillac one that tilts and telescopes electronically

Anybody know of a steering column from another car that would work? Trying to avoid digging into the steering column to fix the phantom wipe and spending $100 plus for a new switch.
When the bolts came lose in my column in the past, i looked in the Yellow pages and found someone who rebuilds GM steering columns. Around here it's pretty common. There are even guys that set up stands in the parking lots at the scrap yards (if you wanna trust them
). Last guy a few years ago came to my apt., charged me $100 labor and replaced any parts i gave him while he dug through the whole thing - only took him about half an hour.
