Nvm found it all on rock auto. Steering box, coupler, and a couple cheap seals. Will set me back a little under $280 after the core fee comes back.

$280 is about right...

It’s what I paid for mine. Works great! Money WELL SPENT!!!

Rag joint/rubber coupler - I checked EVERYWHERE for a new rag joint. None to be found anywhere.

I found mine on eBay and got a half shaft steering column with mine!

Rag joint was in great condition. Was dry, clean, not tattered or brittle. Perfect fit too. I used new bolts and nuts. The half stripped thread pitch on the OEM bolts are impossible to reuse. They are two different sizes too. Just use the original bolt lengths and use the same size nut like the bolt head. I used nyloc nuts for vibration and security so the nuts won’t back off. That’s a scary thought...steering column connected to NOTHING, if those bolts/nuts come loose at highway speeds. God help you and everyone else around you. You certainly don’t want any second thoughts about nuts and bolts coming loose in vital components.

I don't. I'd have to look it up. Courtesy Nissan parts has good diagrams.

I replaced the steering gear box, rubber damper/coupling, and put fresh tie rods on. Gear box made the biggest difference. Handles awesome now.
