Re: Does anyone here have the steering wheel clunk. Interested in DIY?

My truck hasnt made a sound since I done mine. I took pictures of how to pull it out and reinstall it, I never took pictures of how to put the grease zerk in mine. If any member has a truck that makes the noise around Jacksonville, NC. I'd be happy to fix your for free, so I can do the tutorial about it. Basically just drill a hole in the shaft, tap the hole, then clean it out. Put the "U" shaped piece of metal back in. Weld the little holes up, Then put the firewall boot on the shaft. Install the grease zerk, then bolt the steering column portion in, then pump it full of grease to expand it into the lower Steering shaft, Then it'll be fully greased and DONE.
