Steering RAG joint Repacement

I have had two rag joints tear out in the last two outings.Does anyone know of a complete replacement arm/tube from firewall to the steering box that eliminates the rag joint and has at least two u-joints?With my 4.3, The arm/tube has to have a slight off set in it.Thanks ,RR

Re: Steering RAG joint Repacement

With the 2 u-joints on the steering rod, seems if you bolted the doughnut holder together it would work ok. Do you have a body lift? Or get some heavy pipe, one that will slip over the other, slot the larger tube, put a pin in the smaller one to turn the tube and the slot will allow in and out travel.. Maybe a shock bootie to protect everything.

I have a double u-joint setup on mine also. I got it from trail tough when I ordered the power steering location kit. You might be able to get a ujoint from them with out getting the whole kit.

Rick, If you are planning on doing Toyota power steering sometime in the future you can use the lower half of the toyota steering shaft. It has a big u-joint instead of a coupler. This is the setup I switched to about a month ago and it works great.

Re: Steering RAG joint Repacement

I believe it was an early 80's Toyota Carola or celica. "Zook94", on the board is my friend Grant, and he got the parts for me. Hopefully he'll see this. I'm going to send you a long e-mail that should explain it better.
