    I was looking at the aftermarket steering shafts available from Borgenson and Flaming River, price $180 - $250.
    That's pricey, but I can't help but wonder how they would improve steering on our worn-out shafts.
    Does anyvody here have one? Which one? Like it?

    I bought the Borgeson shaft for my '72 Jimmy w/ the anti vibration thingy. I like it a lot. Its pretty stout lookin compared to the original. ummmmm, thats it.. I think i paid between $250 and $300.

    I had a streak of tearing the rag joints so I replaced just the rag joint with a borgesson joint. Think it was around $75 but it has been well worth the money.

    The Borgeson's are nice when you have a body lift, and they do tighten up the steering, just make sure you loc-tite the little allen screws that hold it on...
