Sorry to tell you but the intermediate shaft must be replaced. That shaft goes from the column thru firewall to the steering gear box. Not hard to replace. Remove bolt at steering box then use a screwdriver or pry bar to slide shaft off the gear box. the shaft will slide into itself in that plastic coupler. Now under the dash near firewall remove the bolt holding shaft to steering column. Again pry shaft off column toward firewall. Back under the hood pull shaft out of firewall. The intermediate shaft cost $271. here in Detroit metro. Go to junk yard. about $35. A Durango is the same shaft. Just make sure there is no play at the joints before removing.
