I had about 45 degrees of play in my steering wheel while going down the road. used the how to section to repair my coupler and now I have almost no play at all. I can see why it was trashed though. When I put it back together the shaft going into the coupler is at about 30 degrees off. I think it would last longer with a knuckle in there to allow it to line up. Anyways when I get my lift in I'll probably put a knuckle in or look at doing something different.
