Here is a video of my friends 2021 raptor no thump/binding (55K miles). The shaft has a different finish and the rubber boot on the bottom is a different color. The head of service asked me to write an email to him describing my issue and include all my videos. He sent my email to Ford's engineer and the engineer told them to order the same lower shaft as my friends raptor (after watching my videos).

(Part# ML3Z-3B676-A for a 2021 Raptor). Part should be here next week.

Teslas steering by wire sounds like a good way to go. The fact it’s variable is awesome. Doesn’t give good road feel though.

I'd rather have a thumping issue lol.
I hear ya. But have you seen the way the variable steering works in the Cybertruck? At slow speed, such as making a sharp turn or turning around in your driveway, half a turn of the wheel is the equivalent of full lock. That's pretty cool.
