Auto diagnostics at its finest. This is like pulling teeth... Does it go side to side too? Tear it apart to be sure, but most likely one or both of you're column bearings are worn out.

typically the 3 anchor bolts inside the colum come loose thus allowing the tilt head to flopp you are going to need to take apart the column to verify what is loose

also if the column is used as a grab handle to climb into the truck then the tube may be broken thus needing major repair

Either way you look at it the column is going to have to be pulled to fix it. Nothing you can do to fix it with the column in. They are really pretty simple to fix just take some pictures so you can reassemble correctly.

Trent I found that little nut and bolt on the top side as well. What a difference that made in taking out the L-R free play in the wheel.

LOL bout time you did hope you used a little loctite on it

does nothing for the tilt slop

I apologize for jacking this thread, are the tilt columns worth anything?? I found one in a yard and it's still there but I was just looking around and pressed for time so I didn't snag it up, deal or no deal?? I don't remember how much, it was really cheap though.
