Hi everybody:
a few years back I had a steering shaft snap on my 57. Thank God it happened in the best place possible, at the shop I was going to pay my bill at. Its scary when a wheel comes off while you're holding it. As time goes on Im feeling the replacement i got is getting the same squishy feel the original had prior to braking. I think it just might be me, but again Im getting scared. In a magazine I saw a fellow who runs a desoto in the silver state classic. he had a collapsable column out of a cadillac. I'd sure like to talk to him if anyone can hook me up. Anyway, have any of you looked into replacements? ididit and others seem a popular choice in a lot of cases. Only things I could find was for a b or e bodies.

Is this a manual or power steering setup? Is the shaft one or two pieces? IMO your best bet would be to purchase a constant control PS unit out of a '58. One piece shaft and all but bullet proof once restored and properly installed.

Whoa! the shaft actually broke? I'm really curious to know if that's ever happened to anyone else.

I asked John at Big M auto if he had ever seen or heard of that happening, but he hasn't so hopefully it was a fluke.
