Was skeptical at first as to how easy it'd be to install the steering shaft. Removal of the old shaft damaged the splines on the steering column end... Cleaned the old splines with a file and with some coaxing, it went on like it was supposed to. It appears that the u-joints are replaceable should they ever need be but as it is such a stout built part, I don't foresee the need. Replacing the shaft cleared up 90% of the slop that was present due to worn rag joints, the rest is obviously due to worn tie rod ends. I will recommend the shaft to ANYONE experiencing sloppy steering where their vehicle needs a heavy duty shaft.

EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY, SERVICE & PRICING
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.
