i`m not sure if its exactly the same, but in my Jeep there was just 4 bolts. two up under the dash, and two down where the column goes out through the firewall. disconnect whatever plugs are attached. get under the hood and there should be a bolt holding the steering shaft to the steering U-joint, take that out and the column should come right out

its in the steering column its in the steering column
YES you can.
At a GM dealer
If you use a GM steering column....many are interchangeable. Depending on the year, a column from an Impala or Chevelle may fit.
the 1994 'burban steering column is generally the same as all GM light truck steering columns from previous years. Same tools, Same disassembly removal procedures
On the GM cars I've worked on, you have to remove the steering wheel. There is a vertical retaining bold/pin that has to be remove to allow the tumbler/key lock cylindar. Remove the wheel. Remove the retaining pin. Then remove the tumbler. Reverse the above to install the new one. Hope that helps.
If the column has no key cylinder, just like any other column. If the key is lost/missing re-building the column will replace the cylinder.
In most GM vehicles it is below the steering column and to the left.
You have to remove the steering wheel ,lockplate, turn signal assembly and you will get to four bolts that are loose. Go to your local auto patrs store and tell them you need the special tool (lockplate removal tool and steering wheel puller)for GM steering colums.
In 80s jeep used some GM parts. a company called Ididit makes columns. What color do you need? I have a spare Tan one from a Grand Wagoneer
Check the electrical ignition switch on the bottom of the steering column.
You can possibly make it work, but it won't exactly fit. Length and wiring harness will both likely be different. Now, a '73-'77 steering column for ANY GM A body WILL work.
Go to www.painlessperformance.com and view the installation manual for part #30805 & 30806. It is a generic GM replacement harness with color codes.
OBD plugs on a GM vehicle are generally under the dashboard, adjacent to the steering column.
Best source is GM shop manual, for your year truck, which is usually available off eBay There are also manuals available for download at various sites for a price
The first Column ignitions switch was introduced on GM cars in 1968 for the 1969 Model year...Ford and Chrysler introduced it in 1969 for the 1970 model year..

this is a common thing with GM tilt wheels. what has happened is the u joint in the column has come loose.can be repaired by removing steering wheel and turn signal assembly and then tighten up bolts. Another way is to find a repair shop that does "steering column repair",in Chicago most glass shops do.
You probably have a bad turn signal switch (inside the steering column) if this is a GM.
One cause for "surging" or uneven steering on late model GM vehicles is a faulty steering sensor. This steering position sensor tells the variable assist power steering how fast you are moving the steering wheel. Very easy to change - located at the base of the steering column inside the vehicle. Costs about $60 from GM.
Any 1978-81 GM A-body or 1982-88 G body would work
Try under the dash, just to the right of the steering column. GM started "hiding" them there in the 80s.
it's pretty simple. paste this link to your browser. there are a lot more steering column info & diagrams in the box on the right side of this page. good luck, pappy AutoZone.com | Repair Info | GM Blazer/Jimmy/Typhoon/Bravada 1983-1993 Repair Guide | Suspension & Steering
Most of the older GM vehicles had it mounted in the fuse box. I'm not sure what year they changed it, but I know my 86 had it mounted under the dash, driver side just to the right of the steering column. Might try there.
