The original steering column will not clear the TCI clip or hook up to the rack-and-pinion unit. TCI recommends this ididit bolt-in steering column. It adds a multi-position tilt feature, and accepts stock (or many aftermarket) steering wheels. A column ignition key, signals and four-way flashers are also built in. We got ours in satin-black, but ididit offers the column in chrome if you prefer.
