just pulled the steering shaft in my jeep today and realized that the one that i got was about 1.5" shorter, mine is a 90xj 2 door, 4.0L, anyone know if there is a difference in years or models? i have a 84 and 87, the 87 is a 2 door so would that shaft work? kinda confused, shed some insight

when i took mine out of that sport i got the steering shafts where the same but the steering column was different !! what did u take your other steering shaft out of? auto or standard? i found the automatic steering columns are an 1.5" smaller then the standard one

i think it was prolly out of a automatic one cause its shorter,

I thought it was the REST of your steering gear that's buggered? Your shaft's fucked too? Bummer dude.

yea mang, the shaft has 2" of play in it and the drag link was fucked too, got new steering on already and plated the unibody at the ends of "frame" under the rad shroud for tow hooks and steering box brace,
