Loose steering wheel

Sorry but another question lol. My steering wheel is all messed up, video below. I would really like to get this fixed since I'm getting paid tomorrow so I wanted to get your guys' opinions on what it is and make sure I buy the right part(s). Someone told me it might have something to do with the tilt? The previous owners girlfriend would pull herself into the truck with the steering wheel...

Wow that don't look to good lol. I'd say you column needs rebuilt. If I remember right LMC has the bearings for a good price.

I tried torquing down the nut and it didn't do anything so I'm going to rebuild the column. I'm ordering the parts right now and just want to make sure I have everything I need to fix it.

Your looking at some bucks. A crown vic steering column is the same as our trucks. Replaced mine for 200. Works perfect. Junk yard guys eyes light up when you tell the f250.

I got a complete steering column out of a OBS f-150 for $75 bucks at my local junk yard.
My bearing were toasted also, but didn't wanted to repair it. And also got rid of the ugly non-SRS steering wheel.
