Post Steering column

I want to install a column in my 5 window, 32 ford, coupe. If its a adjustable column like flaming river or idit and i want to mount a tach below the adjustable part, do I need a longer column or will 32 inches be allright ? or is 32 inches the norm ?

The length of the column is what you decide it should be for your comfort. COntact the manufacturers and see what they have to say about allowances for mounting tachs, etc.
BUT remember, where trhe wheel sits is your choice so measure well and be comfortable.

what he said, but i will say that my flaming river sterring shaft has stainless that i dont think was the best out there as it started pitting immediately and it seems like it is wearing out prematurely. i'll let you know when i hit a log truck head on.
