Hi. S10xGN, When you say intermediate shaft, Do you mean you have more than 1 pc of shaft between the steering box and the column? If you do than it would seem like you would have 3 u-joints. On my 38 I have a u-joint on the input shaft of the rack. I have another u-joint on the end of the steering column. Between these 2 u-joints I have 1 pc of double d shaft. That's all. The 2 u-joints are both single u-joints not double u-joints. The reason I'm trying to clarify this is in case I'm missing something, I don't want to be telling people the wrong thing, especialy about th steering.
