I had one heck of a time getting the right one from my local knucklehead parts places. Autozone and advanced auto both ordered the wrong one twice then told me they couldnt get the one i needed! I ended up getting a NOS one on ebay for 75 bucks. Good luck with your search.

I saw those to I guess the reason the other doesn't have the metal because it's made of polyurethane?

My 91 Cadillac has a rag joint.

Does anyone know why there are at least 2 rag joints for our cars? What is the difference?

I don't think we need the metal.

Replaced the joint in my...literally held together by a thread. Really made a nice difference in the steering. Wonder whose great idea this was...and it actually is a great idea.

I believe the difference is for power steering and no power steering.
