I spent a considerable amount of time last weekend in Kalamazoo talking with both Ididit and Flaming River. I had my old column with me and it was a couple of inches longer than any of the standard ones.

Flaming River heard what I had to say, looked at and measured the column, and then said they couldn't do what I wanted. They suggested buying one of their columns and then re-working my steering setup to fit their column. This took all of 10 minutes.

Ididit heard what I had to say, looked at and measured the column, and then told me how they could do what I wanted, for an additional $50 custom charge, and then spent more time with me to make sure I had covered everything. The owner's son, Scott, spent at least an hour with me to be sure I was satisfied and that he understood what I needed.

I bought from Ididit.

i highly recommend IDIDIT. i had a custom length column by IDIDIT in my 1st toy & was very pleased. i also put an Ididit column in my coupe.
however,i originally had ordered a Flaming River unit because it looked sleek to me. when the column arrived & i opened it, i noticed the wiring harness was pinched with copper strands showing from 1 wire. also the cover was partially over top of the threaded piece where the tilt lever went in. the hole was not punched in the correct location. i immediately called the customer service number. i explained my dilemma & this is what i was told: "we do not ship items as you have described " .

after all i went thru to return that piece of junk & get my money back, i will never buy any Flaming Junk product !!! just my .02

I have an IDIDIT column in my T-bird and I like it. It is a 26 inch and not a standard length but it didn't cost any more for the custom length. They will build you any length you need. They are a small family business and you would probably get better customer service from them.

I have installed several Ididit columns in my projects with no problems. They are an excellent company and great people to boot.
