Cj Steering shafts

Need to buy a steering shaft this week.

I've been looking at repairing the stock lower coupling, but it looks like a pretty stupid design. They really used square nuts as bearings!? I mean I guess it worked kinda?
I think they did it to keep my wife from driving my jeep.

Anyways, the Borgeson looks pretty solid. Just don't know which one to get. What is the difference between 905,910,915,920,925? Anybody know? I'm sure one difference is the vibration dampner, which is another thing I'd like to know about. How much vibration are we cutting? I better get that one, maybe the little piece of rubber will magically make the rumble of the 350 go away

"The baby in the back of the CJ is sleeping, maybe from vibration, maybe from gas fumes. Guess were good to keep Jeepin."

I replaced the steering shaft on my '75 CJ-5 with a Borgeson as well. I thought those couplings were a bad design..and when I took mine off it was pretty gritty.

From Borgeson's website (for a '85 CJ-7)
(Two for Jeeps with power steering, two for Jeeps with manual steering)

It's up to you as to whether or not you want to try that vibration damper..I don't think mine had the option, so I can't speak to that. Can't imagine it making that much of a difference though.

When I swapped my manual box for a ram assist box, I bought this one purely based on spline count and diameter
