Enjoy the Drive Once Again

In the muscle car heyday, a tilt steering wheel was a scarce reality saved for luxury cars and exotics. If you did not fit well between the steering wheel and the seat tough cookies! It does not have to be that way today for your muscle car or street rod. Get behind the wheel and drive again in comfort with a Speedway Motors Universal GM Tilt Steering Column.

Do not let our product name scare you either! The \"GM\"is referring to the electrical connection type and steering shaft spline for the steering wheel. This column can just as easily fit into a Dodge, Ford, or any other project you may be building with just a little effort adapting the wiring to your vehicle and picking up a for your aftermarket steering wheel of choice.

A Premium Tilt Column with All the Features You Want

Old tilt columns are just that-old! Do not waste your time in a salvage yard digging around for a steering column for your project that will undoubtably need a complete rebuild. Not to mention it most likely will be too long or too short for your application.

Using one of our universal tilt steering columns is the way to go. This is not just any old aftermarket steering column either. Manufactured with all new parts in a compact design, they will literally fit most anywhere. The small 2-inch diameter steering column tube and compact tilt head that is just 7-inches in length provides copious amounts of leg room while fitting nicely within most any dash.

The five-position tilt head allows 30 degrees of tilt, 20 degrees up and 10 degrees down from straight. This tilt function not only provides the perfect angle for personal driving comfort but can facilitate easier ingress/egress with a simple flick of the tilt lever.

Our column shift model features a compact shift lever with built in offset to clear most any dash or gauge package. The column mounted shift indicator is easy to read day or night thanks to its built-in backlight feature. Two indicator lenses are included, one for 3-speed and one for 4-speed automatic transmissions. We also offer this column in a .

Details That Are an Industry Standard

We all have our favorite makes and models, but when it comes to tilt steering columns the 1969-1994 GM version takes top billing. These columns have been used as salvage yard retrofits for decades due to their wide fitment range, ease of availability, and huge aftermarket support for service replacement parts like turn signal switches, bearings, and more. So, when it was time for us to build our own universal tilt columns of course we kept ours true to these popular GM models.

Our tilt steering columnsfollowthese 1969-1994GM specifications for steering wheel spline, turn signal wiring, and more (making them a near-drop-in replacement for these years). We do upgrade the GM double-D (DD) steering shaft output from the OE .985 inches to a true 1-inch DD dimension for better compatibility with aftermarket for connecting to your steering box or steering rack.

Installs Easily in Almost Anything with Four Wheels

Our Universal GM Tilt Steering Column arrives in a plain steel finish ready to be painted to your specific interior color scheme and ships with cleanly styled chrome-plated control levers for the turn signal switch, tilt mechanism, shifter, and hazard light switch. If you prefer, we offer our column in a as well. The 2-inch OD column tube allows it to be easily secured to your dash using the original mount or a universal column mount. We offer to aid in your installation.

The standard GM steering wheel spline means any 1969-1994 GM steering wheel is a direct fit, or you can purchase a to aid in fitting your 3-, 5-, or 9-bolt wheel to your new column. Our steering wheel adapter will help you find the proper fit.

Our Universal Tilt Steering Column uses GM steering column wiring connectors. The standard 3-7/8-inch turn signal switch connector even uses stock GM wire color codes. This makes our column a direct plug-and-play electrical connection to millions of GM vehicles or just about any vehicle that has been upgraded with an . For non-GM vehicles with factory wiring, you can easily adapt your turn signal wiring by crimping on a new to match the OE Chevy steering column wiring connector.

If a fixed steering column is preventing you from enjoying your ride, then upgrade to our Universal GM Tilt Steering Column today and drive your vehicle in comfort. Your knees will thank you for it!

Installation Tips How to Measure Required Steering Column Length in Three Easy Steps

Your steering column length will not always be identical to the factory column due to several factors, including seating position, steering linkage connection (converting from a gear box to a rack-and-pinion for example), and other factors. For that very reason we highly recommend you measure your specific application for the best fitment.

Start with your dash/gauge cluster installed and your seating position confirmed so that you can determine proper steering wheel placement. Consider having your steering wheel of choice in hand as well for even more accurate measuring.

Step 1:

All our columns feature a 7-inch bell, which is the top portion where the tilt mechanism and turn signal switch reside. So, you will need to confirm you have a minimum clearance of seven inches between your dash and steering wheel.

Step 2:

Measure from the back face of your steering wheel (taking into consideration any steering wheel adapter thickness) to your firewall.

Step 3:

Add 3-inches to this value for proper column pass through distance into the engine bay to get your column length total and then round up or down to the nearest column length we offer (30-, 32-, or 33-inch length) depending upon personal preference.

Additional Notes for Column Shift Applications:
  • Shifter linkage at end of the column can be clocked in multiple locations to clear exhaust or frame obstructions
  • Easiest way to link the steering column shift linkage to your transmission is with a
  • The illumination wire for the shift indicator is separate from the turn signal harness and requires connection to your headlight switch or dash illumination circuit
  • We provide shift indicator bezels with callouts for 3-speed and 4-speed automatics, but these columns will work with most 2-speed transmissions as well
  • For modern electronic transmission swaps (5-speed, 6-speed, etc.) the shift detents should work provided the gear detents on the transmission’s manual lever match up (P-R-N-D-2-1 or P-R-N-OD-D-2-1)
  • Verify column length needed to prevent the steering wheel hitting the dash when you tilt the wheel up
  • Having the column too close to the dash will potentially cause interference with the shifter or your hand
  • Main column ground is attached to the column tube and needs to be secured to chassis ground
  • The black wire in the ribbon harness is the ground for the horn relay

will use again in my 1955 chevrolet Rated by rocky on May 01, 2018

Summary: I put this column in a 1964 chevy c10 no problem works great quality seems very good only difference between this one and a 700 dollar one is one less spot on the tilt and I am not shure of that, it is all steel except the shift indicator housing is plastic who cares.

Yes, I recommend this product.
