I am going to check around a couple junkyards around here tomorrow for a front DS.......but I wonder if any other front DS would work or does it have to come from the same donor????
You can probably re-use your old DS. swap the yokes and it should be fine. (I just swapped my yoke about 2 hours ago...)
Oh and the rear DS can be shortened. Ask a local auto-parts guy and they should be able to recommend someone. Mine was done for about $75.
