99 Dakota 3.9L, 5 speed, 106k on the clock.
Went to the dealership today to have the front end checked because I
noticed there was a fair amount of play in my steering wheel. Service
writer was pretty cool; he told me he had a '99 Dakota too. Anyway, he
told me that the Intermediate steering shaft was loose. Price tag was
334.63 + tax. My question, is this a difficult part to replace? I have
done the majority of the work on my truck. (ball joints / tie rod /
alternator / wheel bearing assembly, etc). I'm no mechanic, but I do like
to save money whenever possible. Has anybody ever done this replacement,
and if so, any special tools necessary?
