Is it worth it ?

After checking all of my steering components I found that the U-joints on my steering column are shot , My question is it worth the extra $100 for the Borgeson HD column,I do have a 1"body lift and am considering moving my steering box forward 1" with the Parts Mike bracket because of binding.

Give it time. It's only been a couple hours since your original post. While I'm not an expert on steering columns, from what I'm seeing in your build, I'd want a tougher than stock steering shaft. JMHO.

I eventually need to replace mine. From the little research I've done in the past it doesn't sound like the HD one would be necessary to me. Not with 35s and power steering anyway.

A stock replacement should do fine. I believe Fernando did a writeup of sorts on the subject. Maybe it was just a bearing replacement.
