Is the speedo a GPS type or can it be set up based on tire/rear gear/trans driven-drive gears?
there is a add on gps module and yes it can be recalibrated for rear gear or tire changes you just mark off a mile set it to relearn and drive it a mile and accept the new calibration and it corrects itself. you can use the calibrate and program feature button on the cluster or the phone app to set it up and it bluetooths to your phone.

Yep, fix it lol. Just kidding man. You gotta remove the wheel, pretty much all the guts(turn signal cam, ignition cylinder, etc to get down to the torx head bolts. There are 4 of them and most likely they're loose. Remove them, clean the threads and put some blue thread locker on them, install. Then just reverse the removal process and bam!

whn those are the issue does it seem like the column can move up or down about a inch or is that some sort of bearing?

Sounds about right. Typically the knuckle?? joint doesn't go bad unless it doesn't have any grease. If those bolts back out just a few threads it will do it.
