Ram15002ndgen will become famous soon enough

I looked at mine much closer today and I understand what you mean now. It's a little hard to see black parts in a black truck with a black engine bay. Had to shine some lights in there to be able to see better. I shook mine around to see if there was any play and there is BUT the play is not in the shaft area that you fixed, it's in the shaft above it. Looking at the pic from rock solid, there is nothing that the repair would do for mine. I guess the steering on these trucks is much sloppier than I had imagined. When I shot the WD-40, I did so into the upper shaft, not the area where the rubber bushing is in this pic. I'll keep an eye on it for future problems.
