How to Fix Rattling Noise from Stearing Gears?

My Chevy also has that problem between steering shaft and motor, where that plastic gears are worn and it makes rattling noise when driving over bumps, what is the way to repair these, can I buy that defective piece or I have to buy all assembly? Its that stearing column I think thats how its called..

Is there any part number?

Most noise in the steering column are from the shaft: 15800140-Steering-Shaft-Kit. Google for the cheapest price.
