S/D Steering column in OBS

i have a 95 manual with tilt steering. my steering wheel flops around real bad. its not loose(bolt that holds wheel on) or the tilt. im wondering how much work it is to instal a newer superduty steering column in the OBS fords? i dont need to hook up the electronics right away just bolt it in and make the wheels turn.

Not that this answers you question on the SD column swap, but you may just need to replace the steering column bearings. Cheers!

That's what I'm thinking is wrong. Friend told me you can buy a rebuild kit for the factor steering Column. I haven't tried to look for a such kit yet. I'm had a 05 f250 Harley and miss the buckets so I'm planning on bolting a set in and wanted the wheel to match. If I find out its more work than I'd be ahead I'm jus gonna fix mine or get a $60 scrap yard good column.

A few things-
An SD column will not work, they are quite a bit longer and the mounting points are different.
You can rebuild your column, but it's a bit of a pain and costs around $100 minimum.
You can buy a used column from the wrecking yard for as little as $25...

So from the guy that just spent $100 to rebuild his column, I'd hit up the junkyard first.
