    What?
    Are you asking about the steering shaft from the colum to the steering box?
    I have a 3"bodylift and I replace the old rag joint shaft with a Borgsen Ujoint style D-shaft. You can custom cut the Dshaft to fit any length. It was a great improvment for hte 180 bucks it cost me!

    The AGR steering shaft will work too, it's also cut to fit...I've got it for my 70 Jimmy with a 3" lift. It is a very high quality piece, as is anything from AGR.

    I welded in a ujoint off a ford escort in place of the rag joint on mine and about three other trucks, no problems yet, and they were given to me. I just made a flat piece to bolt back to box adapter, then welded ujoint to it and to shaft. works great.
