Replacing steering rag joint with u-joint
My rag joint is getting loose, partly because the truck has 108k miles on it, and also because the 3" body lift is putting extra angle on the rubber joint, which it wasn't designed to deal with. To avoid future issues with it, I'd prefer to convert the rag joint to a greasable u-joint. I've already welded in a HD greasable upper u-joint from an F800, so it would be nice if I could find something equally as tough for the lower joint. Any parts suggestions?
