I'm working on my father-in-law's YJ and tore into the steering column today so that I could replace the turn signal/windshield wiper switch when it arrives. While doing this I noticed a small spring in the column was broken. After a good deal or research I determined that it was called the lock pin spring.
See it here: http://www.steeringcolumnservices.co...pin-spring.php
I went to order one, but it's going to be almost $13 for one stinkin' little spring. Since it originally came with a manual transmission it doesn't seem that this part of the column is needed/used. Is that correct?
May question is whether or not I can get by without spending $$ unnecessarily.
Thanks for your help.
