I will be replacing my Rag joint soon and would like to know where to start. Do I loosen the steering box or do I start at the steering column? Also, Is there anyone out there with some advice to make this go nice and smooth? I did a search, but found little.

This best thing I can tell you is to remove the mounting hardware from the steering column and where the rag joint is mounted and pull the column away from the steering box. Pretty simple and straight forward operation. Just be prepare to bend over the driver fender alot and laying on the driver floor board...a pain in the butt if your a big guy.

I gotta!! Heck, you might as well crawl under the sucker and pull out your old box and get one of the GOOD new ones so you can turn real fast. Then you won't have ta worry about dropping your column. IMHO. pdq67
