Question about 1992 Mercury Grand Marquis
I HAVE READ THAT GM OFFERED A NEW REPLACEMENT STEERING SHAFT. DOES IT ALSO USE THE STEERING LOWER BEARING?
I have a 2001 Silverado. Was making noises when I turned and hit bumps in road. Was annoying. Read up on the net about possible causes and found this issue with the intermediate steering column.
First went to the dealer who wanted $250/and a half day to do it. This encouraged me to read about how to do the fix and when confident and tired of the problem I ordered the part. It came in a few days. It took me about an hour to do alone.
What others do not mention is be sure to loosen the bolts to the old part before strapping the wheel (the strapping is to prevent freewheeling/turning when steering wheel is disconnected). You will have to first connect the new piece to the upper end after sliding it through the firewall from the top, then loosen the strap holding the steering wheel to allow you to turn the wheel enough to align the bottom to the lower steering link. The part fits perfectly with a little tapping to elongate the sliding part into the bottom fitting using a hammer and a pair of vice grips. I could do the next one in 30 mins easy.
This was well worth the time and dollars.
Love my new truck now.
