If this not assembled correctly the shaft will travel up and also there will be a lot of floppy play at the steering wheel. Just a thought....
    Interesting, I think my car a 75 montecarlo is missing that spring. The top bearing is tight but shaft has play at the lower end. Should the spring you mention be visible?

    This is the spring brass contact that connects to the brass ring on the steering coupling on a S1
