[DML] Re: Steering Column Bushing - tricks?

Paul - Yes, you should lubricate the bushing if it is otherwise in 
good shape.  I would suggest a lubricant that is not liquid or oil 
based, as this area gets a lot of road dirt and dust.  Oil or grease 
will gather the grime.  Try some graphite lubricant, or something 
that will spray on, dry, and leave behind a dry residue.  Spray 
silicone might also work, but it may also increase the squeaking.  
Tough call there.  You probably have one of the original soft 
plastic bushings, or perhaps one of the aftermarket ones that tended 
to mimic the originals.  Ours are quite stiff Delrin, resulting in 
lower friction.

feel worn or loose, just makes the noise when I turn my wheel.  Can 
I lubricate this?
