GTM Steering universal joint part number & specs?

Hi all,

I was wondering, does anybody have the part number of the steering column universal joints which come with the kit? Also, if you have the specs for these joints, it would be great. I.e., max torque ratings, max angle specs, etc.

The reason why is i find my cv joints tend to bind a little, which annoys me. One joint in particular binds (the one between the front firewall and the rack itself). It just seems that the angle of attack is just slightly too much for the cv to handle. So i was wanting to buy a replacement joint with a higher angle capacity. I found these guys:

Steering Universal joints

Their joints can handle 50 degrees of angle. I was wondering what the original joints can handle.

Thanks, Tom

The joints that come with the kit are Flaming River joints. I do not have the actual part can find them by just looking at their selection and finding the ones that correspond to what each end is attached to.....1"DD....3/4"DD...splined shaft....
