    This is homemade by me with van u-joints and my old shaft, I made a new one with brand new u-joints (got em cheap) for my truck. So now I'm selling mine I put a fresh coat of paint on it 75$ to your door. PM me for possible price break on parts trade.

    I've been pulling them from 80's vans even the astro vans work. It attaches just like your stock shaft does.

    Not to be a dick but the search feature would have saved ya some $$$ as this was talked about on here a long time ago. I always search before I buy anything just to see if I can make it or get it cheaper.

    Thanks for the props, I had to make another since my buddy finally decided to take the one I sent you. We had fun making it since the trucks before 79 used a different mount on the steering column then the newer ones. They are splined not slide on and bolt like the newer ones.

    Can you take your shaft off and take pics of the ends of the shaft, steering box, and column. I might be able to help then. If you have a splined column an 89 pickup steering shaft has the right u-joint and the other end for the steering box not sure if it is different that the 73 to 91 boxes if not I made a shaft like you need for a buddy little more complicated but doable. Let me know and send the pics if you can.

    No, I'm talking about your posts that pop to the top when the last time anyone replied to them was 11/30/03. Every 3-4 weeks there is a group of old posts from you that do this in here and they will be stuck in the middle of all the new posts... I'll have to get a screen shot next time I see it to help explain it better. This one went to the top but you didnt do anything with it recently...
