This steering shaft upgrade is great! Damn you guys!! Now everytime I read about some new upgrade on this site, I'm going to HAVE TO do it! lol... You're going to get me banned from this site by my wife! The Y-braces, the upper control arms, and now this steering shaft... you're are 3 for 3. My guess is the Herb Adams leaf spring mod will be 4 for 4... Now, the only thing is, I was starting with worn out rag joint, so I don't know how much of the feel improvement has to do with simply replacing a worn out part. http://nastyz28.com/threads/intermediate-steering-shaft.316681/page-3#post-3621231 But frankly the steering on this car feels every bit as precise as the rack and pinion on my wife's '17 QX60. The rest of the steering linkages are all brand new and the AGR box is still nice and tight after 20 years, so this is about as good as it's going to get. But probably can't ask for much more out of a 47 year old car than this with just bolt-on parts. And the dampener doesn't at all feel any harsher than even the loose rag joint. Clearance issues between dampener and frame only required me to trim about 1/8" off the set screws. I have about 1/32" clearance now which is plenty since nothing on this set up is going anywhere once it's all tightened down. 100% concur with Rayden and Largestar... very much worth the extra money IMO... and it looks bad a$$ to boot under the hood compared to the stock set up.
