steering u-joint donor

I need to hook up my 74 MII rack (power) to my Buick column. What likely donor cars found at the boneyard are likely to have a u-joint for the rack. And also a DD both ends u-joint.?

I'm thinking astros had them, 05ish Bonnevilles also, but some made noise and were replaced with rag joints by GM.

Late model Firebirds and Camaros as well as Astro vans and Safari vans used a u-joint intermediate shaft which might work for your. With something as important as steering though the purchase of new joints from Flaming River or Borgeson might be money well spent. The joints are typically $75-80.

Better to be safe on the road.
