Steering Shaft Bushing?

I have a lot of play in my steering wheel, more than normal, and I can see this black bushing on my steering shaft that is ripped/torn.

Could this cause play in the steering?

Where can you get a replacement or do you have to replace the whole shaft?

Thanks

That is called the rag joint. Replace the whole thing. This is a good excuse to jump up to an aftermarket shaft. Maximum Motorsports is every bit as good as Flaming River and $100 cheaper last time I checked.

Also, check the steering rack bushings for wear/deterioration.
