This steering shaft is one piece design that is TIG welded and Nickel plated to avoid rusting and provide a high quality appearance. The universal joints are CNC machined from aircraft steel and use sealed needle bearings for a smooth long life. We have designed the steering shaft to be universal for all steering racks. We use a different adapter that is bolted to the lower joint to change between the different splines required for each rack style. The standard steering shaft assembly (FFR# 14553) includes the adapter for the 87-93 power steering rack.
