Looking for Steering Shaft

I have a '91 Jeep Wrangler with manual steering and manual trans and the lower U-Joint is worn out and I'd like to know if anyone knows where I can get a new one or if anything else would fit.

The dealership told me that I would have to be on back order for a year because of an international back order

Please email me and let me know.

Hmmm 4wd.com is out of stock too...

Try here:

<u>Quadratec</u> seems to have them in stock.

Or you can go shopping in my links below (click on Dale's Jeep Junk)... Krage (Jeep Doc), Morris, Sam's... someone will have one just waiting for you.

That is one of my links, great restoration graphics. They seem to be a bit money hungry though. Check out Collins Brothers price on a CJ power brake booster bracket.

Re: Looking for Steering Shaft

Yeah, they are a little pricey, but a used piece might work as well as new, and might save a few bucks for something else. I wouldn't think twice about buying a used steering shaft vs. a new one. BTW, looks like ya all had a good time last weekend. I was up trying to help out Joel a little bit with his rear axle.....it was cold up there....I coulda used my hat.....lmao

Re: Looking for Steering Shaft

I built a shaft using off-the-shelf Spicer yokes and U-joints on both ends of the stock collapsable section. I think it cost about $100. The U-joints have grease nipples and if they ever wear out can be replaced with very common components. I posted the part numbers here a while back. There's a picture on my website.
