Body lift troubles with the steering need help.

I put a 3 inch body lift in my 94 nissan xe v6 hardbody and all went well except i didn't put in the new fire wall plate. Or disconnect the steering shaft because all the other times i have done it we havent needed to. Now the steering shaft feels like it rubs a little when i turn Has anyone else had the problem?

Yeah I had the same problem. Basically the rubber piece that joins the steering shafts together ( the part that reduces vibrations) gets all twisted up from the force caused by the increased angles on the shaft. All you have to do is losen up the end of the shaft at the steering box and tap it out about half an inch. This lets the rubber flatten back out and problem solved!

You can also just pull the steering linkage out and then remove the rubber gasket at the slipjoint. Take a hammer to it carefully and you can extend that slipjoint up to 1.5" or so, which will work for any bodylift.

I did the same when I relocated my steering box on my SAS'd 95 Pathfinder.
