EDIT: To OP, thanks for the heads-up...I just replaced my steering coupling two days ago. Steering reaction has sharpened up only slightly. Next on my list to resolve my slightly sloppy steering are my tie-rods...(I went with the less expensive $30 fix first).
yup, i hear the sound from inside the car, near the steering wheel area. it also "knocks" sometimes on speed bumps so it can't be the slip ring. and the knock disappears when you lock the steering wheel while adjusting (either up or down, forward or back). however the knock is always present in my preferred steering wheel setting so i really have to do this DIY


thanks for the pics and instructions! good job! will try to fix mine next week
