Saab 900 Upper steering shaft / column 

Up for sale is a very nice Saab 900 Upper steering shaft & column assembly for NON Air bag cars. This is in excellent functional condition, no bearing or bushing play, unit is as solid as these ever are!  This is also an excellent upgrade if you want to install a momo sport wheel & correct hub adapter to a 90-93 air-bag 900.  You can just swap these into 90-93 cars and remove the air bag! Now...  The typical failures on this column relate to the shaft itself, the bearings or the bushings.  The "crimp" for the colapser fails and the steering wheel will slide in and out. If the lower or upper bearings or bearing sleeves fail or start to wear, you start to get very annoying side to side / up down play in the steering wheel.

This is not available from Saab as a complete assembly and many of the items in this column are now No longer available or on back order with the collapse of saab finances, and can only be gotten used. The steering shaft alone was once nearly $200 from Saab, and the lower bearings (which you can't get anymore) are not available at any price, nor is the cage. If you could still buy all this from Saab, this unit would be over $780 new. 

Part numbers for some of the components in this assembly (but not all) are 7605256 8934952 8935025 8936163 8936411


I know C-900's, and this is a good working steering column. Everything is smooth & tight, and the bearings / bushings upper & lower are in good working condition. If you have annoying steering wheel play, this WILL fix it. If you are having trouble with steering wheel "sticking" , this is generally a problem with the lower steering shaft - this can still be purchased for around $350 from saab, though I can do better for a nice working used one- see my other listing for this.
