So, how many of you have the latest revision of the intermediate steering shaft? How are they holding up and how long have you had it on? Trying to decide if I want to replace mine or try the RTV fix. Mine is rattling pretty bad...(at least I hope that is what it is). It rattles even when going straight...I did mess with the lower steering bearing and I dont think it is that.

I do need to crawl under my truck and check everything out, but i hear and feel the rattle in the steering column. Also, where is everyone buying them...dont want to get raped by the stealer especially in alaska.

I'm on my third shaft. Second one was crap, must have been a defect. The new shaft has about 25k on it and is still silent. HUGE improvement over the stock one.

Yes, it was under warranty. The bearings done at the same time as they weren't sure if it was the shaft or the bearings.
