2003-2006 Cadillac Escalade ESV Upper Intermediate Steering Shaft

Part Details

  • Location: Upper

This part replaces:

  • DORMAN 425-176
  • OE # 19153614

  • New

This is the part that, as it wears, causes the annoying clunking noise and feel in your steering wheel. This part replaces the shaft and pivot joint. The joint is designed to give long lasting smooth operation with no compromise in the functionality of the collapsing steering column.

Features:

  • Upper intermediate shaft
  • Direct replacement
  • Includes pivot joint as shown

Often on the original intermediate shaft the joint wears out. At first it will usually just make a clunking, or ticking noise. If not replaced over time it can cause not only a loose steering feel, but a dangerous safety concern if the joint separates.
