Cool Steering problem

At 45000 mi. i've developed a loose steering condition, it is coming from the crimped connection. This sits very close to the header. is there a thin shim in the joint any ideas on how to repair it without removing it. Weld?, Epoxy?, any ideas or did anyone else have the same problem?

I'm sorry but I'm not sure what you mean when you say crimped connection. I can't visualize it at this moment, and my car is at the body shop. Could you post pictures?

Are you talking about the steering shaft knuckle?

Re: Steering problem

Its the slip joint between the U-Joint and the rag joint. It had a thin shim from the factory but I think it burned out because it is only about a 1/2" from one of the header pipes.
