Reproduction STEERING COUPLER (RAG JOINT)
This reproduction steering coupler is for power steering applications only.
The original steering coupler (rag joint) can become sloppy over years of use or if any engine fluids have spilled on it.
The original GM steering coupler is part of the lower steering shaft. It is not a separate serviceable part from GM. It may not be visible because of the plastic collar which surrounds the lower steering shaft.
This cover can be unclipped and pushed upward to expose the steering coupler. In order to install this new steering coupler, you need to remove the lower steering shaft and grind off the two drive pins holding the original coupler to the upper flange that is pressed onto the lower steering shaft.
Replacing the original steering coupler (rag joint) is the least expensive option to restore the steering and eliminate any play related to a weak or sloppy steering coupler.
It comes with easy-to-follow directions.
Another great steering restoration item.
