    I just got one from Borgeson, and put it on my '72. I havent got the motor started up yet, so not real sure how it works, but it looks good, lol.

    I've got one from flaming river on my 80. Their customer service is OK. They sent me the wrong joint (which they promptly corrected) for one end and they send them extra long for body lifts and other mods. Don't make the mistake I made of painting it before modifying it to fit. I opted for the vibration dampener. I can't believe the tighter feel I have now, but most of it is due to a completely worn out rag-joint so even a new one of those would have made a difference. This thing is sweet looking and will last a long time. Also the joints are rebuildable/replaceable if there is ever a problem (but I don't think I'll have to worry about that for a long time).
