RARECJ8 With the more box to pass frame brace all was well...until. All that push/pull action eventually broke pass side frame where it connects. A mess. Getting the
Splined upper steering shaft separated from the intermediate was a royal pita. Soak soak and more soak blaster, no help. Resorted to pickle fork on air chisel did the trick. The old bearing was beyond toast.

Good luck.

Edit: top photo not mine but we have same set up. Bottom are the remains of old bearing. We went from major slop to tight n easy.

Axhammer Thanks for the insight. I ordered the bearing today. Iíll order the shaft, mount and lines tomorrow, once it all arrives Iíll be set to do the upgrade on my stock suspension. Iím planning on driving my CJ-7 as much as possible this year.

cpadget Ax, I completed this last year on my '83. Nothing out of the ordinary, other than a tired steering gear, tired shaft, and tired bearing, all equaling poor steering. This truly is the first significant job I had ever done on a vehicle.

You do not need a new a steering shaft if you don't want one. You don't need new a new bearing if you don't want one. You don't need anything, except the H1 steering gear. You actually don't even need the MORE mount, but I wouldn't do this job without it. I also would highly recommend the MORE brace to the opposite frame.

I installed new Bergoson Shaft, new stock bearing, most recommend Wolf Bearing, MORE Bracket, and MORE Brace
I also bought new hoses, just because it was probably time.

GP_Pete I replaced my PS hoses too. Good idea to do.

Axhammer So with the standard MORE mount, and the replacement H1 steering gear, you were able to complete the job. No replace bearing or replacement steering shaft was required. Iím just trying to figure out what I need before I start the job. Thanks.

GP_Pete Also - i replaced my steering shaft w a HD one several years ago - not sure, maybe 10 years ago? It was not a borgeson, maybe Rugged ridge? Either way it all bolts up fine. If you have the stocker, i would def upgrade. The bushing can be swapped at the same time and you should.

GP_Pete I used the Ďstock sizeí replacement. Not the 1Ē forward version. It bolted right up. After reading previous posts, we made aure we had the correct spacers and bolts in each location.

Which MORE mount did you use? Did you replace the steering shaft & bearing too? I want to do mine soon, but I want to make sure I have all the parts needed beforehand. Thanks.

Drill out. Follow with tap. Slow but works.

GP_Pete Btw- drives great. Can tell the variable ratio in the middle is a huge improvement.

I was in same boat. Gave up and went with brand new made in USA PSC steering gear. Good luck.
