Looking to a YJ steering shaft
« on: November 05, 2017, 02:06:40 PM »
Josh thinks the bottom joint in his is seizing up.  Not sure if you can just change that joint or need the whole shaft.

For the money, just replace the whole thing.  Makes a night and day difference.

My father in his infinite cheapness machined a couple new caps (I believe form oilite bronze) for the joint in my YJ steering shaft. Worked great, still in there. I imagine getting a used shaft in good shape wouldn't be very hard or expensive though.
