    why would he need 3 u-joints for the steering shaft?

    Super Duty springs are like stock K5 springs, flat and probably flex well. Lift is likely all in the brackets. Which isn't something I care for. But could be cool.

    it is all brakets and the reason he needed the 3 u joints is cause he dropped the steering box like 6 inches and need that to be able to steer...

    But has he flexed it? Usually push/pull steering and good flex can't happen at the same time.
