YOU WILL NEED TO CUT THIS SHAFT TO FIT. It's easy to do, takes about five minutes with a hacksaw. Please be aware most of the few bad reviews I see were from people who didn't read the instructions and realize that this is a cut to fit part. Measure twice and cut once like usual.
I had one issue that was particular to my setup, and that was an interference issue between my power steering pressure lines and one of the set screws for the lower joint on the new shaft. I think this was unique to my setup, as I'm running an aftermarket Saginaw power steering pump conversion. This was easily fixed in my case by bending the line a hair, and switching to a shorter power steering belt to raise the pump up. However, check to make sure you've got clearance after install before you take off down the road, just in case.
Modifications: I laid out the shaft and marked it next to the stock steering shaft when fully extended. After cutting it off you have to drill a 3/8" pilot hole for the set screw to go into. After installing, the steering was binding. After some investigation, I realized that when I slid the ball joint onto the shaft and drilled it, I slid it on too far and it was now binding on the joint. So had to remove the steering shaft and cut off about another 1/2" to allow proper clearance for the ball joint. After some simple adjustments it works awesome.
Positive: the steering feels like a brand new truck now after changing out this last part.
