Default Dodge parts specialists

These illustrations suck and I want to make sure I'm ordering the right part I need.

For my '01 Ram 1500 4x4, #7 (bottom right) is the steering shaft from the firewall to the steering gear, correct? I'm pretty sure it is but what a piss poor illustration.

why do you want to replace the crummy dodge one known for failure with another? ..

Borgeson, its what i replaced mine with when it needed replaced..

Because it's the difference of paying $100 for an OEM, or $230 for the Borgeson.

I'd rather pay half price for another one that'll last at least another 50,000-70,000 miles which is probably the time I'll get rid of the truck, then pay more money so it will outlast my ownership of the truck.

Yea. If those were the prices I had to choose from I'd definitely go with the Borgeson.
