*NOTE* WCCC services all FoMoCo tilt and tilt-tilt away steering columns 1967-1979. Our shop rate for this service is $90 per hour and most columns with serious problems do need complete tear down and build up which usually takes 3-4 hours plus the cost of any replacement parts needed. To offset the cost of your rebuild, you can send us additional parts or parts columns and we will give you an in store credit. Turn around time is usually one week, but rush orders can be accomplished. For more details call us at 503-463-1130 and ask for Don W.
