  Steering Shaft Rag Joint
By on 3/3/2014
I had a lot of play in my steering wheel, so much so that it was becoming down right dangerous and unpredictable. I couldn't find any other vendor who had a remedy for this problem, except for Latemodel Restoration. The item showed up quickly, and it was as promised! I had a local shop install it, and the steering issues are now cured. My old rag joint had essentially disintegrated. Feels great, worked well, and I strongly recommend it to mustang owners experiencing the same symptoms.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

I bought the rag joint rebuild kit and I had it installed in 25 mins.fits as advertised. I could have bought the new shaft kit but I figured the factory joint lasted 30 years so...... The new joint is waaay beafier than the factory one .I'm expecting years of service.thanx guys.oh did I mention it was inexpensive.

  Bizzare Installation instructions
By on 6/29/2014
Comes with more hardware than what is called for in the assembly instructions. In the picture they are the black stud bolts. Instructions make no mention of them. I had to grind the heads off two press locating pins in original rag joint. New rubber holes are much smaller, and existing L-brackets that need to be reused per instructions, have oversize holes for new smaller hardware. Original assembly bolted together such that you were not squeezing the rubber. New assembly squeezes the rubber. What torque? Instructions don't say, only to not over-tighten.
I can get something to work with the existing hardware but it does not leave a lot of confidence for a critical component such as steering. The new hardware does not interface with the locating holes the same way as the original. This is a General Issue part Mopar/Ford/GM that is not an exact fit for '89 Hatchback V8
From LatemodelRestoration.com: We apologize that you had a problem with this steering shaft rag joint. Please expect a call from our customer service representative on the issue shortly.

  Not bad

I bought the rag joint sorry the coupler a couple weeks ago. The replacing took about 2 hours but that was because mine had not been replaced in 29 years and everything had rust and corrosion and took so time to get apart even after soaking everything with PB Bladter for 3 days otherwise it would have been a 45 minute job. The 45 minutes include having to enlarge 2 holes on the disc. The 2 bolts are a smaller diameter than the OEMs so I used them and that is why the holes needed to be enlarged. Other than that it was a great repair and my steering is right on.

This fixed our steering issues perfectly!!! I was so afraid that it would be to big or to small or the hardware wouldn't work. I was wrong! Everything was exactly correct, easy to install, and fixed the slop play in the wheel. Thanks, will be doing more shopping here at latemodelrestoration.com
