I have the loose steering column, too, in my '99 Aurora. A while back I fixed the loose tilt in my 1991 Chevy Silverado, and the wheel had to come off to get to the offending loose torx screws. Looks like a different problem here, maybe it's a different Saginaw column.
Question: does the steering wheel, turn signal stalk, etc. have to come off to do the Aurora pivot pins? If I read the preceeding posts right, it does not appear that they do. I do not like messing with airbags. The truck did not have airbags so I did not face that problem.

Hello all. My apologies for digging up an old thread! Jason had posted some images on replacing the pivot pins. It appears they have expired or ? Here's my need. I need a visual reference to show my wifey on how to fix the pins. I've always done my own work, but thanks to a severe back injury several years ago I can't do the work anymore. So she has taken over most of the maintenance. Greatest lady in the world! So if anyone has any pictures I'd greatly appreciate it! I've searched Google, and I've come up with a couple blow up images, which will help, but an underside picture and a short description would be great. Just something I can show her to explain what needs to be done.
Hi everyone! I just joined the club 15 minutes ago. I'm driving back home to AZ from CA and have about 4 hrs to go. I just took my'95 Aurora to have the brake lines replaced and they said an inspection. The steering column is loose and shifts around and is now making a noise. I'm nervous to continue home but have no choice. Help! Any advice as to what I should do when it if '95 and I make it home?
Did it do this before taking it to the shop? If not I'd have had them take care of it. Could be a number of things, there's the "pivot pins" mentioned earlier in the thread, and I've also seen the bracket crack and break loose though I would venture a guess that that is less common.
