    I have a 1976 Cobra. I need a rag joint replacement kit. Where can I find one? I DON'T have a large budget. If I did, I would replace it with a stronger joint. Also, does anyone have a picture of what it is supposed to look like? I just want to make sure I'm not missing any parts.

    Not sure where you would find the NOS for the rag joint. Phil at the mustang II speciality shop. Ebay has a knuckle kit that you can get you just need to know the spline count on your manual or power rack. Also, flaming river sells them as well and that is the set up I have. I have two of there knuckles with a Double D shaft it will also provide more clearance around your header area. I think I spent around 160-180 but I got the chrome one so regular steel might be cheeper.
    Hope I helped,
    Jansen

    The piece above looks exactly like what I bought and it worked just fine.

    If you don't have it sorted yet, shoot Tony at forgottenpony an email. There are several rag-joints (rack to column complete, for the power steering rack) hanging on the wall in the shop. :nice:
