    The only thing that keeps me from going full U-joint is the fact you'll get more vibrations being transfered into the steering wheel...it's bad enough with solid bushings and such.

    It hardly added any more. The Borgeson lower U-Joint is isolated.

    you will not notice any increase in vibration. like MP81 said, the lower one is a dampening joint, not a solid ujoint

    I just started the Borgenson u-joint and shaft today but my steering box has a leak at the spline shaft. Going to take in in tomorrow and see if I can get it worked on.
