[DML] Stainless Steel steering shaft assembly



Hello Gang - I just completed the installation of a new all stainless 
steel shaft and U-joint assembly in Winged1. My car has well over 
100K on it, so it has been wanting a little freshening here and 
there. A couple of months ago, I replaced the old bushing with one of 
our Delrin parts (DPNW). Then, I replaced the steering rack a month 
ago with one of DMCH's reproduction racks. That made a huge 
difference in the feel and handling. Those are just gorgeous. There 
was still a little bit of play at the steering wheel that we traced 
to the upper U-joint. The steering was also somewhat stiff when off-
center a bit from corrosion in the U-joints. We sourced an all 
stainless steel steering shaft assembly that features precision 
needle bearings that are sealed for life. The quality of this 
assembly is beyond first rate. Both U-joints and the shaft are solid 
stainless steel. The fit was perfect, with no modifications required. 
The result of the installation is steering that is butter-smooth from 
lock to lock, and with absolutely no detectable play at the wheel. I 
will keep you posted on the driving experience with this over the 
next several days. Now that the fit is proven, we will have these in 
stock (exclusively at DPNW for now) within the next week or 10 days. 
Cost? Less than you might think.  I posted a picture in the photo 
section in the DPNW folder.
