Hi and thanks for contacting YourMechanic. Either you have gotten a steering column for a different year or model of Chevrolet truck, or the steering column was modified for another vehicle. You can change the shaft to match the vehicle and get longer bolts to secure the steering column to the firewall.

If you need further assistance your vehicle, then seek out a professional, such as one from YourMechanic, to help you get your steering column in proper working order.
