Steering column question

I added a 74 camaro front clip to my 59 chevy suburban and the steering column is a little short. What is out there to bridge the gap?

I would have to say pretty much the same as Chevrolet4x4s. you will have to go hunt for a steering shaft that is (x) longer than the one you have.

I looked through your journal and didn't see what column you are using.

Now that I read your original post again a couple of questions come up.
1. What column are you using and does it come through the firewall properly or is that where it is too short?

1. what are you attempting to use for the steering shaft between the column and the box?

If you can, post a couple of photos of what you have and someone should be
able to come up with a simple solution that won't break the bank.

Also if you haven't already looked at it take a look at that thread on "steering shaft assemblies from junk yard parts that is probably up in that white rectangle at the top of the page. It may give you some ideas.

That is a really nice job you have done on that panel, it looks great.
