    445 steering shaft

    the steering shaft just broke on my 445 it was the flexable type.

    should I replace with same type or would it be better to go with a used u joint type?
    and will it be a direct bolt in?

    Sorry, I edited the post.
    The flex shaft is the newer style. People try to find the older style with the u-joint, to replace it with.
