You need the upper shaft from a tilt wheel vette, express van or any other compatible wheel listed above. The airbag is the only issue for me.Moon if you figure out how to mount that c6 wheel you will be my new hero! Good work keep it up!
Yes, but you might find the part cheaper by getting it from a Silverado or van with tilt wheel. Its the upper shaft, just has to be newer like listed above. Near the top is a pic of a Camaro with the wheel. I also found a GTO swap. They used the upper shaft and the GTO guy used his airbag and igniter in the corvette airbag cover. Also, correct the airbag will be non functioning unless you modify it.So if I order this part "GM part number 26074286, upper steering shaft (c6 vette)"
A cobalt wheel will bolt right up just the airbag won't work? Do you have any pictures of one bolted up?
you would still have to swap out the upper shaft to get them to work. The vans and 2500hd trucks use single stage units and could be wired.Quick question, do all of the steering wheels from the ones listed above use that mult-stage airbag deploy thingy-ma-bobber? I'd love to have a newer wheel from the full size trucks (like the savanna vans) with all the steering wheel controls and still keep a working airbag. Keep up the good work and I love how thorough your research gets. Thanks for sharing this with us!
Time, lol. I do this in between work and life. Yesterday was my day off. I went grocery shopping until 2pm, came home put that crap up and pulled the ford 8.8 out in the driveway to clean up. Then cleaned up the garage to back the jimmy in and pull out the column along with the front bumper to get at the trans cooler. I'm like a rabid rabbit on my free time!Nice work as usual...you have too much time on your hands....lol
Yea, I bought the tool also, but was impatient and made my own for $1.15. Now ill have a $20 tool laying around. Ill sell it for $10 shipped if anyone reads this and wants it.Awesome work!!
I always admired the steering wheel in my 04 2500HD parts truck, but it wouldn't fit my 02' 2500HD. Now I can just swap out the columns (or at least the upper shaft) and have it fit right on.
Thanks for doing the legwork!! I've had those tilt columns pulled and rebuilt before and they do eat up some time. Luckily I bought the pivot pin remover tool beforehand
