    Looking to find out if I'm missing a part for my steering column bearing. I have the bearing cup, ball bearings, top cup, c clip, spring and then the steering wheel. I does not look correct. I think there should be a slotted cone between the top bearing cup and the spring. I have older cars that are set up with this cone under the spring to center the shaft with the bearing. The only parts picture I can find is not clear on this.

    This is the same as early CJ5. just looks like it needs something to center the shaft under the spring.

    Welcome from Michigan, I can't help you with that question, but someone will have the answer for you, I have never taken earthier of mine apart, except to replace the steering wheel. Good Luck

    Thank you for the reply. Just do not want to put the new wheel on and have to try and remove it.
