STEERING COLUMNS

 
IDIDIT® TILT STEERING COLUMNS

These great tilt columns from Ididit® are as functional as they are good looking. These columns provide tight, smooth steering as well as convenient 5-position tilt adjustment to suit the preference of any driver and to make entry and exit easier. Also featured are self canceling turn signal switch, 4-way flashers, horn wiring and an billet aluminum knob & shifter kit. Why spend hundreds of dollars and countless hours refurbishing a junkyard tilt column. Columns are available with column shifter for automatic transmissions (shown above ) and without a shifter for Broncos with floor shifters (bottom).

This column uses a strong 1" DD shaft, an industry standard 3-7/8" GM wiring connector. Direct connect to Centech or Painless harnesses accepts '69 or newer GM steering wheel adapters . Column comes in unfinished bare steel--prime and paint it your favorite color.

Part # 42-21100 comes with 42-50031 mounting bracket.

Part # 42-22100 comes with 42-50032 mounting bracket.

AUTO COLUMN GEAR INDICATOR

When using a new aftermarket column with a shifter on the column you need a shift indicator. The columns don't come with one because everyone wants something different so they make them without, depending on the steering wheel you have will allow you to put it so you can see it through the wheel.

WHAT U-JOINT AND SHAFT DO I NEED

When you upgrade to power steering from manual steering you need one or two u-joints to eliminate the bind in your stock column. The early column shaft goes from the nut on the steering wheel to what we call the (bell joint) that slips on the steering box. Because the power steering box is bigger, taller and longer than the stock manual box, you need to relieve the bind on the shaft and that is where the u-joint comes in. We usually cut the stock shaft about 2" after the end of the column tube and grind a "DOUBLE D" into the shaft and mount a u-joint, here you can add the optional lower shaft and lower u-joint to have all new parts from the column to the box.

Here are the two options for lower shafts.

You will need to measure the steering shaft.

You will have one of these as a way to connect the shafts and u-joints to the column and steering box.

   

 

 
LOWER STEERING SHAFT KITS
Tighten up, modernize and make your steering system safer with these steering u-joints and lower steering shafts. Just let us know what column you are using. This will tell us what length shaft and what upper joint you will need, the only other thing we need is the diameter of the shaft on the steering box Works great with our Ididit® tilt steering columns.

BORGESON U-JOINTS
As you can see in the drawings below there are many ways to setup your linkage from the column to the steering box. The most common setup for the Bronco is like the first picture you see, and is the most cost effective.

 

35* Is the maximum you can flex the steering u-joint without damaging it.

This figure shows how far the shaft goes in the u-joint, Good to know when measuring how long the new shaft needs to be.

Here is the proper way to mount the u-joints on the shaft.
