Comments about Dorman - Help Steering Coupling Assembly:

This product fits on the gearbox fine, but one important note - Some older gearboxes use a 13/16 shaft, and this is a 3/4 coupler for the newer gear boxes. It will not fit the 13/16 shafts.

Also, it is not an exact clone of the GM part. This part was essentially copied upside down, with the flat "key" on the wrong side of the casting. It will work fine, but your steering wheel will be upside-down unless you also take apart your column and flip the ball joint 180 degrees. If you don't have tilt steering, you'll have to modify this part or just live with the upside down wheel.

Also, the bolts it comes with are short, so it's difficult to bolt to the lower steering shaft. They should be about 1/4" longer, or you can easily replace them with new ones from the hardware store.

If you can find another manufacturer or the original GM part, it may be worth it - I'm still looking.
