Have you changed steering columns at all? Any Z32 that was fitted with an airbag as standard has a longer column. If you've put an early column in, it's quite a bit shorter.

Probably not the issue you have as yours was a 93 and pretty sure it was a rare cost-option on those years, certainly for JDM cars anyway.

Just a thought the main cross member that runs behind the dash it is correctly fitted ? also check wether there is a flat area on the shaft where the the column meets the rack. Some steering columns wont fit unless the flat on the column and the flat on the steering rack are aligned, it would then just slot in correctly.
