This TSB article is being republished in its entirety to include 1996 model year vehicles and to include the latest level parts.
A “clunk” noise heard/felt through the steering column when maneuvering in parking lots, driving in stop-and-go traffic, and driving over bumps may occur on some vehicles. This may be due to a “slip-stick” condition of the slider spring to the outer tube of the lower steering shaft.
Replace the lower steering column shaft assembly with a revised Lower Steering Column Shaft (-3B676-) assembly. For removal and installation procedure, refer to the appropriate year F-150/F-250 Service Manual.
