Looking for alternative for the steering shaft.

So I am looking at putting in new headers and trying to avoid having to notch the pipe for clearance like I did in my old ones. Has anyone successfully replaced the steering shaft/rod (http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...5&d=1343261614) with a Disco rod or something else that doesn't have the knuckle on it?

Part number would be appreciated if you have it.

I've got 1 in stock ready to ship. Give us a call at the shop if you'd like to order it.

What do you have exactly? I already have one, but I am looking for an alternative to stock that would not require me to dent the pipe for the headers.

Sounds great. Do you know if it will fit the NAS? Like spline count and everything?

I have the straight steering shaft minus knuckle you are seeking for clearance issues. Bolts right in like stock.
