  • Built to strict quality control standards
  • Direct replacements
  • Fits all models with or without tilt steering

A perfect fit.....
I installed this in my 1998 ford e150 van. I had to unbolt and lower the steering column to remove the broken unit and install this part. On the van I would recommend disconnecting the shift cable at the rear.. This would allow you to install the steel plate at the rear of the shift tube before you install the tube on the column. If you try to install it after the tube is in, it is a real bear.. This may not be as much of an issue on a pick up or car.
