Re: [DML] Spec .02 Steering -- Success



Bill, I realise now that you've succeeded in sucking me into a fight I wasn't intending to be a part of. So let me be clear - I don't care if people buy Borgeson units instead of mine. They are more expensive and higher quality. You pays your money and you takes your choice.

Mine are, however, still a leap up from the original joints and for not a lot of money and how fancy do you really need steering joints to be? As long as they do their job, they're going to get covered in crap anyway.

I have not and will not "criticise" the Borgeson units! I criticise YOU! You're trying to fix a nonexistent problem only you have ever mentioned on the grounds that "other cars use it". That's just dumb.

(And once again, I'd like to point out that steering vibration can be a DeLorean issue, however not when suspension bushes and ball joints are healthy, tyres are balanced and wheels tracked correctly)

Nope. My service truck had manual steering when I bought it, and a traditional rag joint. I've since converted it to power steering, with the original rag joint still in place.

I was told your steering columns had a trimmed end that had to go against the firewall. If that is incorrect, I was indeed told wrong. The picture on your website does seem to show some trimming on the joint to the left. 

I am using the same components (albeit with vibration reduction) as Toby and Houston. If you want to criticize mine, you have to criticize theirs as well. 

Borgeson has been making automobile steering components since 1914. Odds are my new lower column will provide years and years of trouble -- and vibration -- free service. 

And I supported domestic industry (doesn't mean much to a European I know).

The only bad thing you can say about it is I didn't buy it from you.

The intermediate shaft is 17mm diameter - though it isn't as though the original is under-specced. My product is  also less expensive than the Borgeson option - why not include that salient fact in your "comparison"?
