#1, For years now my steering column or shaft (what's the difference?) has made an occasional squeak while turning the steering wheel. It has not got any worse but I'd like to know how to fix it.
#2, I have dropped my steering column many times. It's only four nuts but I'd like to know the correct procedure for putting it back. I have been tightening the two nuts towards the front first, than the back ones last. Is there a right or wrong way? The reason I'm asking is because sometimes when I put it back the power steering feels a little tight, and other times it feel just right... anyone familiar with this?
