Drill and tap the upper shaft, put a grease zerk in, it's gonna happen again.

History repeated

Has there been some engineering change between the old parts and the new to permanently fix the problem?

What's the definition of insanity....performing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, or is that chaos theory. I forget.

I don't know, but since you brought the thread back..

It came back literally the next day. Replaced the steering shaft and the bushing. Clunked the next day.. I haven't messed with it since. I just live with it. I'm tempted to put a hose clamp on it. I don't like ****** rigging, but that seems to be last resort. Just a design flaw from GM. Kind of like that bump you get when you leave a stop because of the driveshaft yoke. I just live with it.

I ended up replacing mine and it fixed the problem.

There is an updated shaft that is $130 I believe. I think some guys install a grease zerk because its a whole lot cheaper of an option.
