The correct PN is "Dorman HELP! 31000 Power Steering Coupling Disc" found at just about any Advance Auto store. I listed it in my Hydroboost conversion here: http://forums.amceaglesden.com/index.php?topic=43869.msg341786#msg341786

Also important to note that the original hardware will need to be used for the Dorman part, as only the rubber disk itself is correct. That means you will need to grind off the metal pieces to bolt them onto the new disk.

Jeep XJ, at least till 95, should fit the Eagle column. When I did my swap I checked it, just need to cut it down a few inches (remove the plastic cover iirc)

XJ column done right will do away with the rag joint too.
AMC/Jeep gauges are for amusement only. Any correlation between them and reality is purely coincidental!

Hoping to revive this thread..  My eagle needs a new rag joint.  I'm ordering a pitman arm and steering box (XJ, ZJ, and eagle are all the same P/N) from rock auto.

TEagle85 said the corvette rag joint "fits perfect",  BUT The rag joint Description is: 3/4" 25 spline input shafts with flat.  The input shaft on the steering is 0.72" 26 spline.

So that's 0.03" and a spline off.

I'm broke and trying to get this sorted for as little as possible.  I just spent 120 bucks on a steering shaft for my wrangler, and would rather just replace the rag joint, but would consider it if anyone knows a steering shaft which is direct swap. :help:

Hey Keystothejeepeagle, It has been working for me perfectly. I also replaced the steering gear with part number 7525 from Autozone. Same part number at rock auto and other places I found. I think I have some photos laying around for reference. Ill have to see the spline count. I forgot. Might be on this thread too.

7525 is the steering gear P/N I ordered.  I'll try out that corvette rag joint then.

Thanks!
