GM column interchange question.

I just scored a bunch of odd parts from a buddy of mine. Among those oddball parts is a GM steering column from what I would guess as a late '80s Camaro. Will this steering wheel work in the place of the stock wheel from my '84 Chevy truck? I like the style of the wheel way better than the truck wheel, plus it's a lot cleaner than my present choice. Times like this make me wish I had an interchange book.


Thanks in advance, Chet.

The only obvious question would be the spline count on the column.

Seeing that both are 80's steering columns, I would bet they probably would interchange no problem!

Only one way to find out...........

I was kinda afraid of that only way... I promised my wife I'd get rid of what I know I won't use before Turkey day. Extra junk + limited storage = rather displeased wife. I like sleeping in the house.


Thanks, Chet.

I don't think GM has ever changed the splines on the steering wheel. I have a wheel from an early 90's truck on my 71 K5.
