First off my 2005 was a flood truck. Was clunking in the steering wheel horribly, I read on here and knew what the problem was. Ended up having to pull the column almost all the way out to gain clearance to install the new GM shaft I got today. The old one was rusted solid didn't have any give to it at all. Got it all back together and it still has a noise clinking or rattle. Seems like I'd heard about a bearing that could also be replaced? I was wondering if this was most likely what is still noisy? I'd imagine where the shaft had zero give it probably gave or wore the plastic bearing. Is it hard to replace? It is better than when I started but still has an annoying clinking.
