New steering shaft

Does anybody manufacture a new u joint steering shaft? I seem to have a little slop in my 75k original mile car. Id rather not go the jeep/astrovan route even if its cheaper.

Re: New steering shaft

Is that first shaft solid? Or am I just overlooking the collapsible portion?

Re: New steering shaft

Detroit Speed Engineering sells a replacement that looks like the pictures above that I bought from Summit /racing, very nice unit. I took the astro shaft off and replaced it with the DSE unit, pricey but worth it in my opinion.
