Steering column swap

Good afternoon. I had a tilt column with cruise control and I got a NON tilt column now waiting to go in. I noticed on the wiper switch that it doesn't have cruise control. I have a brand new wiper switch in abox that has cruise, how hard would it be to make this column have cruise? being the truck is already set up for it.

Re: Steering column swap

it should be a matter of swapping the arm out for the new one and tuck the wires into the column
most gm multi-function switches are the same for that era and look like this pic
to remove the arm; push the arm in hard towards the column, twist it and then pull it out of the blinker switch

my truk has an 1986 astro column that i had to swap out the switch to match my aftermarket cruise control

Oh alright, yeah I was able to get my hands on the correct switch, and remove the old. Now I just have to fish the wire through the column and plug it into the old connector, once I go to actually do the swap that is. Thank you for he reply
