OK, now we're getting somewhere. Apparently, the socket that your shift lever fits into, inside the column is broken. This is more common on manual shifts than automatics, but it does happen. You can buy replacement parts, pull the steering wheel, signal switch and key assembly to repair it, but it's a miserable job. I would highly recomend buying a used column and replacing the entire unit. Being an '87 truck, you should have no problem finding a used on at a reasonable price and probably even match the color. Let me know'
