Anyone have a Borgeson Steering Shaft?

Is the steering noticeably improved over stock? Any tighter, smoother, or what?

I need one and thinking about getting one of these but they are fairly pricy over a stock piece.

i have one looks verry well built but dont have it installed yet. be prepared to do some drilling possably. The directions say to install the shaft to a certain point on the steering column and tighten down the lock nut through the hole. They say if no hole is present one must be drilled. Dont know why they say that or if the stock steering column works without drilling as like i said its not installed. Also in the directions they say that you will need to file a flat spot on the gear box gear the shaft mounts to as you wont use the stock position. Dont know why they made it that way but just telling what the directions i got with it said. If you want i should be able to photo the directions for ya.

Borgeson is a "universal" shaft, so some cutting/drilling may be required. That being said, once it's done, the shaft is well made and tight. (Measure twice, cut/drill once.)
