    Any ideas why this seems short? Has the column collapsed? Should it pull down to hook up to the box?

    It is likely collapsed, but not a "too too hard" job to fix it.

      Looks like the column is not collapsed, but appears i have a std box with a power steering column now. Going to put on a power steering box and use this column still.
