Steering Column Wobble

Question: I just got an '88 Formula and I had to tighten up the torx bolts on the steering column, now the top of the column is loose. That bearing washer will not stay in the bearing so the rack just kind wobbles around. How hard is it to just replace the whole rack?

Answer: It sounds as though you have the tensioning spring (rests against the bearing) in upside down, or not at all. We expect that when you say "rack just kind wobbles around" you really mean the steering shaft. It is much simpler to replace the column then rebuild it.
