noisy bushing in steering

Hello all I have a question on my 86 chevy nova there is lots of rubbing noise coming from the upper part of the steering coloum.
I am pretty sure the bushings need lube,my question is can I just remove the horn pad and then the big nut and shoot something like WD 40 or do I need to remove the wheel itself something I really would not like to do because I dont have a puller and I am to cheap to buy one for a one time deal.
Thanks for all your input oh before I forget this is a pre airbag car.

The last time I had to pull off a steering wheel off, I went to the parts store for a puller, and they had a rental one. Other places will have you buy one, use it, and then return it for a full refund. (free )

Steering column bearings are not made to be lubed in that manner. Something is rubbing inside. Pull off the wheel and have a look.

Do as the others suggested with renting the tool. If the bearings are bad, they must be replaced. Can't service them.

Check alldata.com for any known bulletins on this problem.
