    Do a search, this was discussed ad nauseum only weeks ago. Search for Borgenson and XJ steering shaft.

    Just get a steering shaft from an 89-90 XJ it is double ujoint and bolts right up. Atleast that is what fit on mine and it only cost $20. :)

    I did one on my Blazer. Very solid feel. The XJ way looks to be pretty good, but I don't think it is up to the quality of the Borgenson or Flaming River. But, bang for the buck, a good option.

    Ive got a Borgeson, I love it. Got it direct from them. But it did rust a little fast though. I didnt paint it, so, oh well...

    Quality is top notch in my opinion though. Worth it for me, but maybe not to the next, as it was somewhere in the neighborhood of $200.
