    My original steering shelf is worn to the point of the ujoint up to having about an 1/8 inch play in all axis and it had the plunger style coupling on the gearbox end, also with a ton of play. I apparently ordered the "HD" steering shaft with a ujoint on each end.
    Are these cross compatible or do I need to exchange this and get the one with the "coupling"? Both are listed as for 76 and up CJs.

    The one I have now is here
    OMIX 18024.01 Heavy Duty Manual Steering Shaft for 76-86 Jeep CJ-5

    and the one that looks like the unit I took out.
    OMIX 18016.01 Lower Steering Shaft Assembly for 76-86 Jeep CJ Series with Manual Steering

    Thanks for any help
    Josh
