    Hello, its that newbie with the leaks 😄. My turn signal was all loose and wobbly, cracked and it honked my horn every 2 seconds. So I replaced it. The replacement went well. However, now my steering is a bit tight and no longer corrects itself/returns. If I turn right and let go of the wheel...

    Anybody out there do a 67 column swap into a 1st gen to get the benefits of the collapsible column?
