What is the deal? Is there a trick to removing the upper Intermediate Steering Shaft from the lower SS?
I need help.

Nope.  Although it'd make more sense to have actually posted in that thread.

Remove the top end as well and then work to pull it towards the interior.

Well, I have pulled. . .  from both sides, in and out. The prob of pulling from inside (under dash) is the shaft only expands.   There is not enough room to pull out from the lower shaft.   :E:

If it's that bound up, then hit the lower end with some penetrating oil - I can't recomment PB Blaster highly enough.

I finally got the new ISS installed and now I am glad I did.  After I installed it this morning and running errands this afternoon the avalanche drives like new!

I did have issues trying to remove the upper from the lower. . . murphy's law.  But now that it is in and driving like new I can say that this is well worth it.

Is there a difference in the shafts for a 2005 and a 2006?I couldn't get the part to come up on GM Parts Direct for the 2005 but it did for the 2006.Just want to be sure before I spend 60 bucks on something I can't use.

I finally got my ISS out the other day and lubed it up.  I spent about 20 minutes or so slathering grease on it and working the shaft out to spread the grease.  It feels better now, but I may still order the replacement shaft.  However, I think a new instrument cluster has priority over the ISS right now.

Well I haven't even owned mine for a week and think I've been bitten by this Intermediate Shaft bug.

Felt it on the way home, thinking something might not of been greased, but did that, then found this site and there you have it.

Dealer I bought it from has a warranty, but its over 100 miles one way, plus its a dodge dealer, so I hate to drive that far for them to check it, then have to go back for them to order the part so on so on.

So I guess I probably  should order one from gm direct for 66 and save myself the trouble.

Thanks all ....great site

After reading your very informative post on how to grease the shaft I decided to contact GM since my vehicle is out of warranty.   I was told that they had a fix for it by replacing it with a different shaft.   Since mine had been greased once during warranty by the dealer that they should replace it without cost.   They did it today.   You may also qualify.

This is kind of a popular question with alot of different answers.

What I've learned is, if your the orginal owner chances are pretty good that you can get it replaced from the dealer.

If your the 2nd owner (like I am) chances are your going to have to suck it up and pay for it.

But by all means call your dealer and ask, worst they can say is no.

  • Often imitatated but never duplicated!!!

I just replaced my rattling part (15000 miles) on a Z66 and bought  its replacement version  from GM  Parts Direct for about $55.00 and changed it myself in about 45 minutes--Lock down the steering wheel with bungee cord, remove the gas pedal  using ( 1/4 inch drive and extension) (adjustable pedals here)  I am more satisified by doing it myself!   You can do it too!!! Also got rid of the rattles through the steering wheel- Thought it was my Hotchkis bars for a minute there... ::)

We are not alone hundreds of thousands of trucks like this platform are getting them done!

also another good tip to getting the shaft out is to remove the boot on the firewall it has 3 aluminum type nuts thats it. pull the whole thing out(of course after unboltiing the bolts on the shaft) slide the new shaft in the boot and install it saved me time from having to undo the electric pedals...

ntermediate shaft P/N 19153614 has been designed to replace previous designed dampened and non-dampened Intermediate shafts.

that is the part i ordered from gm parts direct, so i do not need to lube this before i install. i will be trying this in the morning possibly, so any last minute hints or tips would be appreciated. so is this down in the engine bay or upper part toward the firewall ?

Just read the thread, and utilize the removal & installation portions - the lube is what you won't be doing.  It's all there.
