Body lift? Might have to drive the lower part of the collapsing shaft down to get the proper length

steering shaft

My stock shaft could extend a little to compensate for changes. It took some effort to get it to slide, but it should extend a little. My current is a Borgeson and there is a set screw in the shaft that must be loosened first.
