    Steering (column - universal joint thingo)??

    Hi all

    I am trying to locate a Universal joint that lives in the steering column - but I'm not even sure that that is what it's called? It transfers turning actions down from the steering wheel and onto the steering rack? Honda can no longer source these - and they even tried Japan. I have also looked at Rock Auto in the USA - and they don't even list a part for that - only full racks and seal kits etc.

    Does anyone have any suggestions? Mine is quite rattly - and annoying. The other front suspension ends have already been replaced?

    Cheers

    Hi all,

    I would really appreciate some help if possible. I've done extensive searches, Japan, Canada, USA, and UK and NOT been able to find this part? It's a 53323SL4J01 - Steering Joint Complete. It has a different name outside Oz, but I forget what it's called at the moment. Does anyone know of a Honda Parts oulet that MIGHT carry older weirder items? I did message Hondworld on Facebook.

    Speaking of Facebook - I have applied to join the Prelude Australia group TWICE now - nothing but silence? Is there something wrong?

    OK - after searching the world over for a new part - I have had to settle for a 2nd hand one - located right here in Victoria. Hopefully it's bye bye to those horrible column rattles!
