Joint at steering box end loose
The joint at the bottom of the steering shaft on my 84 CJ7 seems to be loose and the boot has torn again. Is there any way to replace this joint with another kind of joint like a u - joint on the borgeson shafts? Or can I replace it with another factory joint? I'm too cheap to buy the complete borgeson shaft as I feel it's only the bottomthat's causing me a problem right now. How does the borgeson shaft make up for changes in lenght of the shaft as the body moves on it's mounts? The factory joint seems to have a small amount of in and out play built into it's design.
