Default 96 hardbody steering wheel swap

Got a Grant steering wheel and install kit 3560 for my 96 hardbody. I want to swap out my oem wheel with air bag but I was wondering how do i wire up the horn and turn signal? I read that this model has a clock spring setup? I had a 95 hardbody without a airbag and the steering wheel swap was pretty straightforward. So if anyone has done this swap please help me out!

disconnect the battery, remove air bag, unbolt wheel and install new wheel. T/signal is not affected, and single wire for the horn like other vehicles.

Your air bag will stay illuminated unless you unplug the SRS module IIRC.

Your kit should have the contact plate that rides on the oem contact for the horn. The original wheel should have a set of contacts that look like spring-loaded fingers that ride on the multi-ring contact plate at the column shaft exit from the steering column. There should be nothing else you need to do. Remove old wheel, install kit, install new wheel and connect the horn wiring inside the kit/hub. All of the factory parts stay, aside from the wheel.

For what its worth Grant does not list the 3560 kit (or any other kit) for the 96. or 97 trucks.... it looks like 95+< is listed for the 3560.

I hope this isn't too much of a hijack...
I too am thinking of a wheel change aswell...
But with the no airbag previous years and the airbag years, are the column diameter/splines the same...or different????...

Finally got to do the swap! I had to remove the clockspring that controls the airbag and horn and I lost the turn signal cancel feature. So my question to anyone who did this swap how did you get the turn signal feature back? I know that I will have to run a horn button and not use the one on the steering wheel. Any help is welcomed!
