Later models had a tilt steering wheel function ...a lever under the steering column. Not too sure about the 87's.

I just bought an 88 coupe L and it has tilt steering but it's not like my 90 sedan, it's spring loaded.

my 87 L has a switch that you pull under the steering colum sort of like the hood release you pull it and push the wheel down because when it down and you pull it it will go up byitself. But my 89LS has a lever thats on the side of the steering colum.

I believe the earlier G1s had a choice of either an airbag or a tilt wheel function... That changed in 88 or 89 when the cars could have both.
yah thats what i thought but do you think i can get a column off of another car and put it in

My 91 Sedan don't have tilt but it has telescopic! What is up with that one? my 87 coupe had fully adjustable!
Yeah it sucks that the 91-93 G2's didn't have tilt. I've thought about using a couple washers as shims between the steering column and dashboard support beam to lower the wheel a little. Haven't tried it yet, just an idea I was considering. Might be able to do something similar on G1's. Wouldn't be able to lower it much but every little bit helps.

Oh yeah Im almost for sure you could do that...what I'd like to know, would it be at all possible to get the power tilt/telescope of a 94-95 L/LS and get it to work in 91-93 OR EVEN (long shot) a G1??
