    Here is there website: http://ww2.borgeson.com/TRUCKS/CHEVY.html

    I had the intermediate steering shaft replaced under warranty but its still popping, and I want it gone, my truck only has 26k miles on it. It shouldn't feel like this...so I have been searching for a replacement for it, and aftermarket, beefed up replacement to get rid of the popping/clunking once and for all! So has anyone had experience with this particular brand or know of a good brand to go with?

    Thanks in advance.

    I bought 2 U-joints and their slip yoke shaft and made a custom shaft for my FJ-40. Their products are very well machined and they are also very proud of them price wise. <G> They have the double D shafts as well as the OE splined shafts. Good stuff and they are very knowledgeable on the telephone.

    Thanks Jim ~ are they the only guys that make a replacement shaft for our trucks that cures the popping once and for all?

    Has anyone used Borgenson Replacment shafts

    I installed a Borgenson shaft in my 05 Z-71 after using the so-called factory fixes that didnt last. Installed easy and has lasted longer than the GM shaft and fixes.

    Thats the info I am looking for! How much do they run for everything? I am having a hard time finding the price, I saw one in passing on one of their pages and it said to be 225?

    Since my shaft has not started popping yet I can't answer that question. I would buy one from them and probably will once mine starts making noise.

    I know Flaming River makes this stuff too but when I called them they were rude on the phone and treated me like I was stupid. I had an old advance adapter spud shaft that I wanted to convert and the guy told me they never made the shaft. I told him he must be new and that pissed him off. :)

    Hey guys, sorry to dig up this older post, but I am having the slight rattle/clunking I can feel in the stearing wheeel when taking turns on on/off ramps from the highway and sometimes when accelerating into a turn from a stop like at a light or stop sign. Is this what you are looking at for a replacement for this issue? I have done some research and alot of times it states there is a noise from under the hood that you can hear if this needs to be replaced, but I have not heard any particular noises, I can just feel this knocking/rattle in the steering wheel. This is what I found on one parts distributors website and was looking for something a liittle beefier so that I don't have to swap this out twice when I find the GM part still doesn't fit the bill... Any Imput?

    Also, Burn, Did you go ahead and swap out with the Borgeson? If so, how did it go?
