Lexus ES350 Toyota Camry Intermediate Steering Shaft Dorman 425-465 - 1ASTC00158

This replacement steering column intermediate shaft with coupler is just what you need to get your car 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.
