Full-size Ford Pickups have a type of steering coupler that can show signs of wear in as little as 4500 miles, depending on how the truck is used. This wear, which causes play in the trucks steering, is even more noticeable if your truck is used for plowing, towing or if over sized tires have been installed. Replacing the worn steering shaft with another OEM shaft only gives you a temporary fix. Borgeson has replacement Ford truck steering shaft assemblies with precision needle bearing u-joints available for 1980 to 1991 Ford F150, F250 and F350 trucks. This Borgeson 000985 steering shaft is a replacement for the under hood intermediate shaft.
