R&R lower steering shaft 99 LS400


Recommended Posts

I am having trouble getting the lower steering shaft replaced. After replacing the rack, the lower shaft would come back down to be installed. I replaced it with a non-tilt shaft. I now have the tilt shaft, but I can't get it to install on the steering column. I don't think I would need to remove the entire thing to replace the correct lower shaft. I can't get it to go far enough through the firewall to install on the upper shaft.

The lower shaft descriptions are confusing; non-tilt, tilt, can't install it on the column, etc.

I've never done column work on the LS, other than to lower it from the dash to access the ignition switch.

In order to disassemble/assemble the column, I would recommend removing it from the vehicle and working on it on a bench.  Hopefully, the attachments will be of some help.
