Q & A

What's in the Box

Make your 1955-1956 Chevy more comfortable to drive by installing a new Ididit steering column. These tilt columns with shift move the steering wheel back 2" while the non-tilt leaves it in the stock location.

Uses the common 1969 and up GM wheel adapters and 3-7/8" wiring plug. Listed below are wiring adapters for the stock harness along with a floor mount. Column uses 3/4"-36 spline U-joints. When using the original steering box, the input shaft will need to be cut and modified into a 3/4" DD.

  • 3/4-48 spline designed for 3600 rotation allowing proper ratio
  • Both 3/8-16NC and metric 10-1.50mm threaded nuts for mounting electrical accessories

Ordering Idea:  You can use the Backup Light or Neutral Safety Switch Kit # 491-1400 with GM Column Shift Linkage, except for 4L60E and 4L80E transmissions.

Tech Tip:  If you don't have a direct line of sight between the column shift arm and the transmission shift arm, consider using column cable shift linkage # 491-1804 or # 491-1805
