Buick Grand National Tilt Steering Column Lever Replacement (Project Blackout)

From the factory, all Turbo Regals get a chrome shaft with a black head for the tilt steering column adjustment lever.

If you use the tilt function a lot, over time, the shaft may bend (the section nearest the steering column), just like ours did.

It wasn’t bent enough to actually require swapping out, but this goes along well with the “Blackout Series” of posts we are currently doing.

We replaced the one on our 1987 Buick Grand National with one from a Monte Carlo SS, which received an all black version in those G-bodies.

This works great for us, since we are in the process of converting all of the chrome pieces in the Buick Regals interior over to all black parts.

Just FYI, this new black tilt steering column lever is somewhat shorter than the chrome OEM version originally supplied in these Turbo Buicks.
(it’s about 2″ shorter, not a big deal, but worth mentioning)

Replacement literally takes a minute.
Unscrew the old lever and screw the new unit in place.

The part cost less than $10 when we bought it a few years back (and are just now getting around to installing).
