The OEM steering shaft assembly was not designed for the added stress of lifted bodies and oversized wheels and tires which cause premature wear. Borgeson manufactures a direct bolt-in heavy-duty replacement shaft assembly that includes a slip shaft, collapsible shaft and precision needle bearing u-joints. The steering shaft assembly is easy to change with common hand tools and will improve steering precision.
This product is of superior quality, sound design, superb engineering & execution of product concept thru product development.
The quality of this hardware is second to none, and I can fully attest to this, as I am in professional racing (as a career).
This product is vastly superior to the original hardware, at an acceptable, cost effective price, with a value that far-exceeds the monetary demands at check-out.
This product is designed to handle the toughest of off-road conditions, and at the same time, is perfectly applicable to the daily driver that warrants upgraded technology where safety and precise engineering are called for.
I highly recommend this product to anyone needing/wanting the very best in steering input, control and safety.
You cannot possibly find a better product, better design, or higher quality, with closer tolerance - than with this product. The hemispherical joints are straight out of the professional racing catalog, and the materials used in manufacture are of the highest aerospace quality available. ALL, at the novice price-point.
Sure, I could have spent less, and purchased a junk yard product, or a aftermarket original-appearance piece........but I would have gotten a sub-par, questionable piece for an application that is safety-critical, and where close tolerance makes all the difference in steering input and feedback control.
OUTSTANDING PRODUCT QUALITY, DESIGN, ENGINEERING and PRICING. UN-MATCHED VALUE..!!
