Nickel Plated Slip Yoke

Recommended Posts

I am SICK of greasing that damn thing every few weeks and I want a permanent solution, but I'm not foolish enough to pay the local dealer some $500 for one. Could someone please provide the GM part number for the nickel plated slip yoke so I can order it online? Thanks.

Greasing the piss out of mine with a heavy marine grade grease I found at Autozone has kept it quiet for almost three years now...

When time comes to grease mine I will use Triple Guard Grease which is really thick and sticky waterproof marine grease which is used on propeller shafts in sea water.

Is it true that the nickel plated slip yoke has been replaced with a gold plated yoke to justify the $ 500 price tag? :)

I tried marine grease, no dice. I just had the intermediate shaft relubed for clunking, and now I'm getting a tapping noise coming from behind the dash. I'm getting pretty pissed! Nothing I can't stand more than rattling-type noises on my vehicle. I got so pissed at that dash rattle the other day I pulled over on the highway and ripped the frigging thing apart looking for it. Still avoiding me. :(

 

EDIT: Define "greasing the piss out of". All I've been doing is coating the splines with a good layer but nothing TOO crazy. Am I supposed to dump the entire 8 oz tube into there or what? I'm about at that point.

That "tapping" noise you are referring to might be the lower steering column bearing. I know ever since I got rid of the intermediate steering shaft noises I can definitely hear that lower bearing when driving over rough surfaces. There is a "fix" using a hose clamp located somewhere on this site. I have yet to try it on my truck but I think I'm just going to replace the bearing itself.
