intermediate steering shaft replacement

Recommended Posts

I still have the original intermediate steering shaft in my '06 truck. I never needed to replace it because the truck has such low miles. But now the shaft feels loose, even on hard pavement (first it was only loose on unpaved ground). How difficult is the shaft replacement? Do I need to remove the power steering pump first? That's what the shop manual says. And to remove the PS pump, one must first pull off the pump pulley.


Is the replacement GM intermediate shaft redesigned and does it last longer? Does it still need periodic greasing?

Due to the numerous (UNDERSTATEMENT) issues with these shafts if you are the original owner GM will pay for it half or all. Just had mine completed at local Chevrolet dealer. GM paid half and i paid other. 2nd owner 44K miles.


Worth a call to your local dealer as i had it done with no issues. They do it and no hassle on your part buying shaft, lube kit or anything else. New shaft design with no greasing needed - all sealed up.


Of course my guys take care of me. OOPS was that my loud typing. :driving:
