1990 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 Question: Steering column to frame connection

 

Question

Visitor, Diesel, Walla Walla, WA, April 17, 2010, 10:17

The connection where the Steering box mounts to the frame has pulled loose. A mechanic told me I need to cut out a piece of the frame and weld an undamaged piece back on. another told me he thought there was an adapter kit that would solve the problem. Is either mechanic correct?

    I had a similar problem with my 1991 Chevy suburban 1500 truck. I had a shop
    weld a piece of steel to the outside of the frame where the steering box mounts to
    the frame. That fixed my problem with a loose steering box.
