Re: 96 FORD F250 7.5l Steering noises
The " more info " explains ,
Intermediate Steering Shaft
Dorman's Steering Shaft Universal Joint is pre-assembled, with high-quality bearings and forged end fittings for strength and durability. It effectively eliminates clunking and binding, restoring a firm steering feel.
If the needle bearings in the coupling are gone they jam up , common on many other makes of cars also .If you grab a hold of coupling you should feel if worn or not . Either that or check for wear whilst steering is turned .
