I have a steering knock and i was wondering how one goes to replace the lower steering column bearing. I thought that you could take the Intermediate steering shaft and then pull the bearing down towards the bottom. But i don't know how one can get it out of the column itself. I have had a headache and a backache from bending over backwards under my dash to try and get this beast off.

Any idea's would be awesome.

This is on a 2006 Silverado 2500hd duramax.
