Back in the market for a 2003 3.2 L Intermediate shaft!

The price for a new one more than doubled after I ordered it so its worth my while to look for a good used one a little longer

Have you checked with LNengineering to see if they have a triple bearing upgraded core?

I don't know what a "triple bearing upgraded core" is. is that the bearing or is it an upgraded shaft?

It is an upgraded replacement shaft with a triple row ceramic bearing assembly; it was developed for the 2005 and later engines with the over sized IMS that cannot be removed without taking the engine apart.

The guy in Austin had 5 old style IMS shafts and I need the new style. Thanks for the tip.

lnengineering.com can upgrade any IMS with a ceramic triple row bearing which is stronger than their double row "retrofitable" ceramic bearing. This triple bearing upgrade must be installed @ LN. Sometimes they have extra core IMS that they will sell outright without a core requirement.
