    I had a little clunck in stearing wheel, but also alot of slack in the stearin wheel when driving. My upper intermediate stearing shaft was worn out.The shaft has a small u-joint in it. it is located close to the exhaust therefore the heat dries the grease out of the joint. You can change it and it will happen again later on
