about that U-joint...is there anything in there that needs greased as part of regular maintenance? i did not see any old grease residue when i was cleaning mine but i know some U-joints do need to be lubed regularly.

It's a sealed, non serviceable unit.

I just rebuilt my rack with a new seal kit and paid special attention to installing that bolt from the shaft to the ujoint.it's very easy to strip that bolt.I took the advice and used a new one. My steering is nice n smooth but a little firm.lovin it.

watcha lookin at foo

You can just thread in a longer 10mm bolt if the threads strip like Soloist was asking. Then put a nut on the end. I had the right bolt in my spare bolts bin. The only forces on this joint is the torsion of the splined collar end so there's no need to worry about the splines stipping.

I bought a legend and drove home that had a bad 6mt flywheel. Looked under there and the column was barely attached to the splines on the pinion. Way dangerous. That column slides in and out in case of an accident and it must have been bumped up during the previous clutch job, so make sure it's all the way down and fully engaged on the splines when reinstalling the rack during replacement or a clutch job.

Absolutely terrible, bad advice. If it strips, replace the joint! Can you please delete so no one reads it.

Thanks

This is what I did. Installed a through-bolt then a nylock threaded nut. I guess worst case is that it breaks while I am doing 90 down the freeway and I end up with interesting life experience.

Please explain how running a smaller, less stronger bolt that you found in your toolbox through a safety related part is good advice.
