Has anyone replaced one of these? Any pointers?
Mine looks like the U-joints are worn out causing play in the steering.
Seems like it makes sense to replace this first, then see what the rest of the front end feels like. From the looks of it this should be simple replacement.

I finished this last week. Replaced with a heavy duty borgesen shaft. Not the easiest job, but overall not too bad. Went ahead and replaced the steering gearbox as well as it was leaking. Easier to do both at the same time. Huge improvement in steering, no more play in the wheel and steering is now much tighter! Very Happy
