Lower Steering Shaft
You can but have to remove lower steering shaft. Remove the 2 bolts from lower shaft and remove bolts from keyed shaft top and bottom bolts must be removed to move shaft all the way down so you can pop top of shaft off to remove and replace bearing.It is a bit tricky to do but I did mine that way..WD40 ON SPLINES When you put shaft back on splines must line up with key for bolt to go thru .You mite have to shock with big hammer to remove.
