I need to replace the support for the steering shaft pass through and I can’t find the parts needed. Does anyone have a diagram? My rigs a 2004 LX.

backstory: So when I changed my steering rack somehow my steering shaft (the part that passes through into the cab) broke its support and now it causes a thunk when I hit a bump (super annoying off road).

That might be it! I can grab the steering shaft and move it up and down and when I shake it down with force is clunks. But everything works perfectly. I’m guessing that’s the part. Thank you for your help!

quick update, part recommended was not right. Apparently 98-02 (maybe 98-01) they went to a VGRS system and the dust seal I need won’t work. So I’m not back to finding the correct dust seal. Anyone know the right part?

Did this solve you issue? Experiencing something similar...
I'm struggling to understand how the boot would cause the clunk.

Small aside: Just for the folks who don't know, go to Partsouq and enter your VIN, then use the parts lookup to find what you need. It's quite specific, and while I'm sure there are mistakes in their system I haven't found one yet.

Thinking the boot acts as a support and keeps the shaft centered in place

I have the booth but need to get it installed. I think my issue is elsewhere. I did find my upper SPC ball joint took a crap on me so I need to have them warranty that out and see if that fixes the thump.

I have spc arms as well and one ball joint looks a little worn. Hopefully their cs is good.
Does the int shaft need to come out to replace the boot?

pound the top of the arm with your fist and see if you hear the noise. Mine was thumping and I need to warranty the joint out. For the seal I’ll try and remove the shaft but last time I pulled the steering column. What year is your rig?

Its a 98, so looks like its not the boot but the other part no.?
