Ride: 97 EL Falcon V8 Ex Pursuit Car

Location: Perth
WA, Australia

Hi guys, just after a bit of advice. I have a 97 EL V8 Falcon (ex WA Police) and my mechanic has told me the uni's on the steering arm is badly worn and Ford no longer sell them new :(
Any idea on somewhere that one might be obtained other than trying a wrecker? The mechanic reckons one from a wrecker could be just as worn :? I remember going through this years back with my old F100 and someone told me there was someone that could "rebuild" uni joints somehow using epoxy or similar :o I ended up finding one NOS from the states so didn't end up needing it, anyone heard of someone who does something like that? :?:

Yeah that is what my mechanic said, just thought there may have been someone who did copies like you can buy replacement headlights, indicators etc :? Either that or as I was told with my F100 that they joints can be refurbished :idea:
