getting rid of the clock spring.

So is there anyway to get rid of the clock spring. I was thinking of changing the wheel on my 98 TJ it has a 4.0 and a 5 speed transmission. So my question is has anyone come up with a way of getting rid of this dumb thing with out messing up the turn signals and all the other thing it screws with.

The horn & airbag depend on the clockspring but the turn signals do not. I certainly would not lose the airbag just to get a cooler steering wheel.

Remember that having a different opinion doesn't also require one to be a jerk when expressing it.

When you have a choice, buy American.

I'm not really looking for just a cool a steering wheel by any stretch of the means. I thought I had read a few threads that said it affected the signals and even the TPs. however thank you very much for the information
