It looks like the DMCH/Toby unit only has one stainless U-joint but the unit you sell replaces the upper and lower U-joints with stainless? Is that accurate? I'm under the impression that the DMC unit leaves you with one OEM U-joint and one new stainless U-joint. Thanks!
    Ours includes the upper and lower joints along with the shaft. Not sure on dmchs current offering. I buy these in quantity through summit racing and some how receive a better price than directly with the manufactures best price break.

    Shaft cautions

    Twenty some years ago, my intermediate steering shaft got sloppy in the u-joint. Not having a lot of options for parts {already on Delorean Ones s___ list] I had a machinist friend Make a copy. Struggling to install it, I got the upper joint to slip on easily and tightened the pinch bolt....done. TWO YEARS LATER coming back from Aberdeen SD after dropping of my grand daughter I was tooling along at 70 MPH on back roads when the steering felt funny. Turning the wheel did nothing!!! Slamming on the brakes got me stopped in the ditch, just short of a slough. The steering wheel felt like nothing was connected and that was the truth. The upper u-joint that went on so easy had just pushed the steering column up a half an inch and the pinch bolt missed the groove that keeps it from falling off! It was held on by 3/8" and the grace of GOD. Two hours later working through the upper access panel only I was back on the road, having a greater appreciation of mechanics. Thinking of all the miles and mountain passes i've driven gave me pause. Know what your doing before any repairs!!!!

    Thanks, Josh. One more question. The DMCH unit has sealed needle bearings which require no maintenance. Is that the same with your unit?

    Josh,

    Have you experimented with the the Vibration Isolation coupler made be borgeson? I read somewhere on here that somebody installed one and that they could feel a difference.

    I have it installed on my car. It does kill some of the 'road noise' you can feel through the steering wheel in a stock configuration.

    Thanks Patrick. Do you happen to have a part number for that? I'll probably pick one up. I'm looking at grabbing one of DPI's stainless steering shafts, too, but I'm wondering if its a sealed maintenance-free unit or not.

    Call Borgeson at (860) 482-8283 and ask for Gil. He helped me piece together the correct length stainless shaft, stainless u-joint, and stainless vibration reducing u-joint. They have DeLorean in their system and just need to tweak things with the shaft length since the stainless vibration reducing u-joint is longer than the normal u-joint. The price was lower than I expected!

    I have used one of the vibration reducers but with everything else we had installed the difference was difficult to tell. I'm sure the feel would have been much more responsive without the shocks all the way up and poly on all four corners.

    Hey Patrick. I called Gil at Borgeson . Can I get your last name or invoice number? He will look up your order and duplicate it.

    Thanks!
