    Hey Gang,

    I am in the middle of converting my '75 FJ40 to Saginaw PS and was wondering what you experts out there think of these parts for the steering shaft.

    Any reason why these wouldn't work?

    Make sure you measure the input shaft on your steering box and check your spline count, but if they match it looks like a pretty good setup.

    Thanks for the feedback guys!

    The input shaft on my box is 13/16ths and I count 30 splines (raised part, not recesses) with a large flat spot.

    I think that the flat spot constitutes six "dead" splines so I think it will work.

    Thanks again,

    The steering section from the column to the box is the last major part I need...put in the order tonight.

    I think all I paid for the nice slip shaft type from Downey was $230. It was worth it to me.

    this is the set-up I have on mine, these parts are top notch.

    Be sure to paint them though, they will get surface rust quickly.

    You simply cannot beat Borgeson for quality steering parts.
