Hey guys.



I need to purchase a new steering joint for the 94'. Who makes an after market NON-Rubber flex joint? I would like one of the stainless u-joint units. I just don't know where to get em'.
 
I think it is 3/4-36 spline, you had better check with them though as I am going by memory of the splines (and it's going to mush).
 
Interesting I noticed mine was all cracked. I might have to look at this.
 
I just replaced all the tie rods and steering rack.


I STILL have a "wandering" feeling from the steering wheel. If the car is shut off and I go to turn the wheel in either direction, I can feel the slop in the rag joint.


it's goin bye bye.

Good Call, mine is doing the same thing, I have alot of slop, some slignment shop said its in the rack but I didnt belive them.
 
I will be doing this to my car too, more to fit the Cobra manifolds, but the tighter steering is a bonus!
 
Not yet.


I called flaming river, but they have no idea what I need.


I'm waiting for an e-mail back from someone else who should know.

Do you know the Spline count? I might be able to help you out. I have a few sources.
 
Give Jamie a call, he probably has one laying around he could sell you or adleast confirm size.
 
Tommy said one side is a D and the other side might be a 36 spline
 
Tommy said one side is a D and the other side might be a 36 spline

that is what I remember..
the top side is a unique shape like "D" shaped, the bottom end going to the rack should have 36ish splines with an enlarged spline/keyway/alignment area.
 
Any news? I can set up a GB from flaming River is there is enough interest.
 
no news.



I hav'nt been able to get under the car recently.


I am definatly in. I just don't know which one we need.


Mike
