Re: 1967 Steering Column Bearings

For the bottom ball bearing, I just measured the inside and outside bearing dimensions. I then went to the local farm store and picked up a sealed roller bearing for about $5 and slid it on, I then put on the bottom hardware and clip. Easy, simple, cheap fix that is better than the original.

Re: 1967 Steering Column Bearings

I posted these numbers a while back and heard that they were still good GM numbers. They were for a 65 but think they are the same.

Upper 5679205
Lower 7802845
