Part Details

  • Includes:   with Coupler

This replacement steering shaft with coupler is just what you need to get your vehicle in good working condition again!

Often on the original steering shaft coupler the joint wears out. At first it will usually just make a clicking, 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.


  • Intermediate Steering Shaft with Coupler
  • Direct replacement
  • Built to strict quality control standards
NOTE: This part is an updated design. It may appear different than the original factory design, but it is made to fit and function the same as the original part.

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