Default 1992 245 Quick Release Steering Wheel

Yo, now that the 5.3 is done I need to start researching what steering wheel **** to get. I'm ordering a Grip Royal designer wheel. What's the best, easiest to install and most reliable quick release steering wheel setup that I should get for this super Duchebaggery wheel that I'm ordering?

I really like the NRG quick releases that use the multiple balls to lock the hub. They do not develop play, and you never have to worry about having the wheel on crooked.

For a 6-bolt adapter, get anything but the OMP one:

Edit: Looks like all of the adapters suffer from the same issue with cancelling the turn signals as different points when turning left vs right.

NRG and momo both use the same canceling design?

I saw the NRG one and almost ordered it but it's 82-91? Mine is a 1992 with airbaggers. Still fits?

NRG is solid. I use a 2.5 series with a Momo adapter because 740. I don't have turn signals, so I can't comment on that.

It should. The steering column itself is the same, SRS vs. non-SRS. The only difference between the two is the casting for the turn signal/wiper switch.

You'll want the earlier horn contact ring that's smaller diameter than the one on the airbag cars. Direct swap, did it on my '92 when I replaced the airbag wheel.

I have a bolt-on quick release that uses a hex shaped shaft. It will move the wheel closer. I haven't driven with it in a long time since I parked that car...but I don't remember having any complaints about it. You can also get ones that have a weld-on hex that removes the need for the adapter linked above.

You're correct, I updated the post. They must have changed the design. It used to be a solid block, but now it's a "U" channel so they won't cancel turn signals properly.

You have to fill in the gap between the two rails for it to cancel like a stock wheel.

Or some bent sheet aluminum, or some epoxy.

It's just annoying that it has to be done.
