I have a 1986 Silverado with a loose steering wheel, I’m wondering if it would be easier to change it out with a aftermarket column or repair the old one. Any thoughts will be appreciated

My truck has a loose column too. It was tight for a long time. I didn't remove the screws and use locktite on them. You can remove the steering wheel, plate, springs, and turn signal switch. I crafted my own "U" tool to press down the plate. Once all the parts are removed, you can take out one screw at a time. Use red locktite and put them back in. It's not hard. It can be complicated if you have never removed the internal parts. I'll look for a good write up with pictures.
