I am having a problem with the steering column moving in all directions, about 1", from the automatic gear shift arm up toward the steering wheel.

Everything use to be solid and tight, now I am able to move the upper portion of the steering column by placing pressure on the outside of the steering wheel as I am driving. It does this in all of the adjustable positions.

Its pivioting in the center of the column adjacent to the gear shifter.

I can't figure out how to access this area to see what might be loose.

Is there an adjustment somewhere?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like the column is shot.
That happened to a buddy of mine. We were in his Blazer going over some large rocks and the thing just gave. It started pinching some of the wires inside and started to smoke. I hopped out and pulled the battery cables off, stopped the smoke. We had another buddy with us, so they left to get another column from home. I threw it in on the trail and we drove home. Cool
Yours doesn't sound as bad as that, but that's what I would expect to happen if you don't replace it!
