Steering Shaft descision (stock or aftermarket?)

I was getting ready to order a steering shaft and then. It hit me! "You have never ordered one of these" so I thought go online and ask the gurus."

Should I just use the factory or go with something like a "Flamming River". Have any of yall been down this road and what kind of advice do you have.

Here are my vehicle specs (or to be specs) 258 built a tad - front is dana 30 with warn chromoly axles locked with 456 gears and a warn front hub conversion - Rear amc 20 solid axles with 456 gears locked - (TSLSX super swampers on beadlocks (Yes I am keeping them thanks to a earlier post)(Thanks for that info)

Many Thanks
Sheb

Re: Steering Shaft descision (stock or aftermarket?)

I am tired of replacing the ragjoint on the stock ones. Four times now. Not a terrible amount of money but now the top joint is loose too. Aftermarket for me this time. I was running 35's with manual steering.

Re: Steering Shaft descision (stock or aftermarket?)

My friend went to Tractor Supply and got some rather large u-joints to fix his steering on his CJ-7 with a 360 and 35s. Only cost a few bucks and has lasted several years now. A great and cheap upgrade. At $229 Flaming-rip is a tad on the steep side IMHO.
