Stainless Steel U-Joints
Borgeson's single-needle bearing steering U-joints are machined from steel, stainless steel, or aluminum on CNC equipment. Continued engineering and testing ensure the Borgeson U-joints meet or exceed current production vehicle requirements, and they operate at angles up to 35°. For example, a GM column can easily be connected to a new Mustang rack & pinion or a Ford column to a Saginaw box. Recommended for street use, Borgeson needle bearing joints last as much as 10 times longer than non-needle bearing joints. There's no backlash or radial play; joints are permanently lubricated/sealed, needing little to no maintenance.
Using a Borgeson double-needle bearing universal joint can negotiate angles over 35º. Available in steel, stainless steel, and aluminum, these doubles accommodate angles up to 70º and are available in all spline and DD configurations. Note: Using a double joint in addition to a single will require a steering shaft support bearing.
WARNING: Motor vehicles contain fuel, oils and fluids, battery posts, terminals and related accessories which contain lead and lead compounds and other chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm. These chemicals are found in vehicles, vehicle parts and accessories, both new and as replacements. When being serviced, these vehicles generate used oil, waste fluids, grease, fumes and particulates, all known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, and reproductive harm.
WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are: lead from lead-based paints, crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and arsenic and chromium from chemically treated lumber. Your risk from exposure to these chemicals varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure, work in a well-ventilated area and with approved safety equipment, such as dust masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.
WARNING: The wires of these products contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling.
