Steering

Asked by Nov 10, 2016 at 10:23 AM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My steering wheel has too much slack. I'm told (by
a shop) that I need a steering shaft replacement
but the part is not made anymore. Junk yards don't
even carry them. What can be done to fix this
problem? Its hard to handle on freeways with
windy conditions. Are there any other vehicles that
may have the same steering shaft as my 97 gmc
jimmy?.
