'97 Jeep TJ Steering Column

Hello everyone, this weekend I'll be taking out my steering column and I would like to ask if there are any tips or tricks to do so. And anything to help so it's not a total pain in the behind. Thanks in advance!

Re: '97 Jeep TJ Steering Column

I just did this the other weekend. It was pretty simple to remove but when I went to put the original back in, it didn't meet up with the u joint from the upper shaft. I've tugged and pushed and done all i can and i still can't get the 2 pieces to meet up enough for the column end to slide in. I hope you had better luck than I did.
And if anyone has any suggestions or comments to help, I would appreciate it.
Also I looked into a new upper or lower shaft that would accommodate a lift ( I'm thinking because of my 4" lift that when the steering was released to take out, it somehow relaxed and now maybe that's the problem why I can't get it back)
