Got a question for you. I've had my kit for over a year now & just recently got around to installing it because it was in the body shop for a fenderbender and the driver's fender was removed. That made it so easy to install. However, I tried to be gentle and hit it no harder than I had to but since i installed it I now have to pull up on the shifter to get my key out. Have you got any easy tricks to remedy this? Thanks.

I'd just buy one.
That said, I nstalled one on my truck and it was the single best mod I made. I had changed everythingin the nose of my rig twice trying to get it to steer and this was finally the cure.

I just found my bushing I ordered a long time ago...must have been a year or maybe more. Been in and out on military duty, lost it during the moves and finally found it again. I went back through the posts here and think I may be missing a part. I've got a black bushing and an installation tool, but can't find the retainer or instructions. I'm fairly certain I can work without the instructions, but the retainer would be nice. Can't find a receipt or anything. I'll try to email you from your site, but could you email me and see if there's any way you can help?
When I had my 95 Ram, I received a recall notice to repair the steering
shaft due to plastic parts wearing out/breaking which could cause the
upper shaft to separate from the lower shaft. It is recall #96V230000.
Could this be the cause of what you guys are experiencing?

Life would be so simpler if I had a pop-up too. . .
Pullin the steering column is easy. Hardest part was the damned linkage for the auto shifter! 6 bolts total, 6 (I have steering wheel controls and everything) electrical connectors, and out it came.
Cut the retainer off. Watch it go FLYING into the air.. clean it all up, press in the new bushing. tap on the retainer, put it all back together.
I think I spent longer cleaning up the trim pieces on the steering column than doing the actual work!
Downside: It didn't fix the squeak I was tryin to kill.
Upside: My steering felt 'ok' and now it's GREAT!
