    I started off that way, but I found I was bending the dog house!
    Maybe if I was hauling a 125 2-stroke instead of an XR650…
    It is quick and easy though.

    That's right. It's the angles that matter, not the offset. Within reason, of course. After all, the whole purpose of a u-joint is to accommodate offset.

    The u-joints don't care about 1" offset. After all, they're offset more than that in the vertical plane from the trans to the diff. U-joints don't know up from down or right from left.

    Probably so on a G10, but the G20 uses a 12T (for truck) differential, so the bolt flange may be different.
    And those 5-hole rotors definitely won't work on the G20 6-bolt wheel stud pattern.

    I'll agree that u-bolt replacement is preferable to steering box replacement. I tried removing the pitman arm once - no dice.

    OK, I'll bite. Is that double swaged tubing you used to join the upper shafts part of the Nissan EPS unit? I see it is splined on the lower end.

    Jumping a tooth between the worm traveler and the sector? That would be one seriously worn out steering box.
