Send a message via AIM to Ewils35
check the salvage yards for a decent wheel. you can always unplug and unbolt ur air bag and put it into ur new wheel.

Hello guys
I agree check the salvage yards for a decent wheel
when removing a steering wheel remember
don't forget to disconnect the batteries before starting to replace the air bag equipped steering wheel to avoid a nasty headache
be certain to index the wheel and spline I use a felt tip pen
you will need a puller to remove the wheel from the splined steering shaft
do not hammer the wheel back on that can damage bearing in the column
use a small amount of anti-seize compound and tighten the retaining nut slowly
