Ok I have had it with the stupid A$$ rag joint on my steering shaft. Has anyone ever cut off the rag joint and and welded on a u joint? How many splines does a stock steering box have? 1980 GMC Jimmy. Has anyone useued a aftermarket steering shaft like Borgeson? I am open to all suggestions. My Jimmy has a body lift and I know people hate them and this is causing my problem but it will stay on the rig.
