LS....Are you speaking of removing the column or the steering shaft from the box?

You have to remove the steering wheel and column from the inside, then you will have to remove the entire steering box from the frame to get the steering shaft out of the way to lift the body.

I would not try to lift the body, supporting it on the rockers. I would think they would collaspe. If you can run the arms up high enough you might try using a nylon sling through the door windows and lift it that way.

Somebody here probably has a better way of lifting it using a hoist than I can think of.
