Using one of our 57 Chevy tilt steering columns is the way to go. This is not just any old aftermarket steering column either. Manufactured with all new parts in a compact design, the small 2-inch diameter steering column tube and compact tilt head that is just 7-inches in length provides copious amounts of leg room while fitting nicely within the dash. The five-position tilt head allows 30 degrees of tilt, 20 degrees up and 10 degrees down from straight. This tilt function not only provides the perfect angle for personal driving comfort but can facilitate easier ingress/egress with a simple flick of the tilt lever.
We use a 1-inch double-D (DD) steering shaft for connecting to your stock steering box. A 1-inch DD to 3/4-inch DD coupler is required when retaining the stock steering box and the steering box input shaft requires cutting and modification to a ¾-inch DD configuration.

We also offer this column in a floor shift version. Direct Replacement for Your 57 Fixed Column.
