[DML] Re: Steering Shaft Bushing



Nick and Alan - We have a replacement bushing that is made from 
Delrin plastic, and will last you the rest of your car's life.  The 
part comes with instructions on how to do this task as painlessly as 
possible.  In answer to the question about using a bearing, this 
would be fine, although the installation would be complicated by the 
need to install a bearing retention housing.  This would entail 
drilling two holes, and we would need to verify that the shaft 
configuration has enough length in that area to allow for a bearing 
and housing without interfering with the upper splined connection.  
This installation would certainly be more complicated and expensive 
than the much simpler bushing replacement.  We have been told by 
knowledgeable customers that our bushings fit better than any others 
currently available.
