From the same site,

https://www.steeringcolumnservices.com/steering-column-repair-how-to-instructions/gm-buick-cadillac-chevrolet-oldsmobile-pontiac/pivot-pin-removal.pdf

Honestly, I think my solution might be a lot easier. It's a crappy design. I never use the tilt at all. I think it would just wear again even with oversize pins. I'd be afraid of cracking the piece that the pins press into.

Yes, agreed. Depends on what I find when I get into it.
I have the tilt set where I want it and that won't change smile

I see now there is a retracting tool available if I choose to spend the money and replace with new or oversized pins.
Thanks, Larry.

Yeah, I just pushed my pin back in. I only did the right side as that was the one that had popped out. The other side is covered by the multi function switch. At the time, I just didn't feel like doing the extra work as the column tightened up enough where I never even notice it.

If you just want to push the pin in, that R/S pin is reachable from underneath if you remove that panel underneath, the one that mounts the OBD connection and lamp for the foot well. I was able to wiggle the steering wheel and shove the pin back in. You do have to disassemble everything to use my solution though.
