Part Details

  • Includes:   Coupler

This replacement steering column lower intermediate shaft with coupler is just what you need to get your Dodge Dakota & Durango steering in good working condition again!

Often on original steering columns, the shafts with the coupler wear out. At first it will usually just make a clicking, or ticking noise when moving the steering wheel. This can usually be felt. If not replaced, over time it can cause not only a loose steering feel, but a dangerous safety concern if the joint separates.


  • Lower intermediate shaft
    • Mounts between the upper steering shaft and steering rack
  • Built to strict quality control standards
  • Fits 2WD Models only

This intermediate steering shaft with coupler is a great replacement part and provides a good cost savings over the price of a dealer part.

Item Condition: New

Great product, price, and service
Excellent products and customer service. The steering shaft was about half the price as what other companies sold the part for, and I got the part really quickly. I actually got the shaft about three days early. The customer service was great, the gentleman was able to tell be the part was equivilant to the part number the mechanic gave me.

good replacement
I have a 1999 Dodge Dakota SLT 3.9 Extended Cab When my shaft began to fail i went looking for an affordable replacement. Initially i had a doubt about the above part, being 30% of the price of all the others i could find, however it was an exact fit, and restored my trucks steering back to factory. I highly suggest coating all the exposed splines of your steering rack input pinion with anti-seize before installing a new shaft. itll make the next guys job of replacing it in 10 years so much easier.

Fit perfectly
This fit in my truck perfectly and was super simple to do just one bolt on top one on bottom and slide it out and slide the new one in.. just know that the end of it slides out and it is not to short it is adjustable

Good Buy
Came as pictured. Packaging was very nice. Gave it a 4 out of 5 only because like many others have stated. youll have to get an alignment done after installation as your steering wheel will be rotated to the left about 5-10 degrees. Otherwise A+ seller, would buy from again.

Who is the manufacturer of this part?
John C February 10, 2016
Not sure of manufacturer, the u-joints in this one are definitely beefier than the OEM part and the overall quality of the part is better as well. Ive used this shaft as the replacement for 3 of my Dakotas and have had no problems with it. Definitely recommend using it as a previous customer and as a proffesional auto tech.
